       into bite-sized chunks
  • 6 large carrots, cut by 8mm blade (1/2-inch)
  • 6 stalks celery, halved lengthwise
       and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 16 ounces fresh or defrosted
       frozen corn kernels
  • 1 cup white grape juice

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  •    salt, to taste
  • 1 16 oz. can drained garbanzo beans
  • 2 cups defrosted frozen peas

Heat oil over medium heat in 6 qt pot, saute garlic and onions 5 minutes. Add tomatoes with liquid, potatoes, carrots, celery, corn, grape juice, bay leaf, vinegar, cumin, oregano, pepper, salt and vegetable broth. Heat to boil, reduce heat to high simmer, and cook, uncovered 50 to 60 minutes or until vegetables are tender. (Add water if needed during cooking.)

Place chickpeas in colander under cold running tap water to remove canning liquid; rub them gently in kitchen towel to remove skins.
