This easy recipe comes together quickly and contains some of the World's Healthiest Foods. It tastes even better after a day or two in the fridge, so try to make it up ahead of time if you can. As always, I urge you to seek out locally produced and organically grown ingredients whenever possible.

Recipe Ingredients for Cream (or not) Of Artichoke Soup With Garlic, Onions, & Garbanzo Beans

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 onions (about 1-1/2 pounds), coarsely chopped
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
4 cups chicken stock, preferably homemade
15 ounce garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained & rinsed
28 ounce artichokes (packed in water), drained, rinsed & coarsely chopped
1 cup organic heavy cream (optional)

Recipe Directions for Cream (or not) Of Artichoke Soup With Garlic, Onions, & Garbanzo Beans

  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot on medium heat, then add the onions. Stir to coat with oil, cover, and cook until onions are soft and starting to brown, stirring frequently, about 8 to 10 minutes.

  2. Make a space in the center of the pot and add the garlic, stirring so it all touches the bottom of the pot. Cook, stirring, two minutes.

  3. Add the artichokes, garbanzo beans, and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then simmer with the lid barely cracked for about 30 minutes.

  4. Purée with an immersion blender, or transfer in batches to a countertop blender and very carefully purée, then return to the pot.

  5. Stir in the cream if desired, let cook a few more minutes, then salt and pepper to taste.

  6. Serve plain or dressed up with whatever you like: a dollop of sour cream; chopped chives or parsley or scallions; some cheddar, jack, or Irish Shannon (my new favorite cheese); a sprinkling of crispy fried shallots; or a few big fat homemade croutons
