- Add the potatoes and stir fry for about 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add the herbs and allow them to melow over low heat for about 12 minutes.
- Add the broth, raise the heat and bring the soup to a gentle simmer, add the chickpeas, cover and cook slowly for about one hour or until everything is cooked.
- If you like your soup to have texture, ladle out a cup or so of chick peas; if you prefer it mostly smooth, don't.
- Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until it is as smooth as you like.
- Add in the spinach, the reserved chickpeas(if you reserved them) and simmer twenty to thirty minutes--until the flavors all blend.
- Now stir in lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste and serve, hot, with crusty bread.
