Saute the onion and garlic over low heat, covered, until the onion is translucent.
Add the milk and raise heat to medium, and cook until a boil is just reached, stirring constantly. Add the chick peas, spinach, and spices, and continue to cook and stir. When spinach is completely wilted, remove a cup and a half of the soup to a blender and puree.
Return the puree to the soup, stir well, and serve hot. Makes 4 servings.
