Tuscan chickpea soup (recipe in the comments from May 22, 2008)
Garlic infused Italian bread

Hot tea
My mom loves a good soup and this is quite the unusual bean soup. First off, it's pureed and had very few other vegetables in it. That said, it manages to be incredibly flavorful. It's easy to make and the result is quite impressive. This is another recipe that depends on an immersion blender unless you want to do the multiple batches of pureeing in a blender. Yuck. At any rate, with an immersion blender it's a breeze. This was enjoyed by all!

Prep Notes
Difficulty: Easy
Chopping: Onion, garlic, Parmesan
Time: 30 minutes
Make ahead: This saves really well.

"This is much better than the individual ingredients suggest - an amazing soup."

The kid report:
Definitely a hit. Two bowls, three pieces of bread, and even a bit of salad (notoriously not a T favorite).
