Chickpea and garlic soup

1 tablespoon Olive oil
1 large Garlic clove; minced, (I used 3)

1½ cup Broth
¾ cup Tomato juice; (I used V-8)
Salt to taste; (I omitted)

Heat oil in medium saucepan. Add garlic and pepper flakes. Cook gently, stirring until garlic is fragrant, 2 minutes. Add celery and bell pepper; cok and stir until vegetables begin to soften, 3 minutes. Add drained chickpeas, broth and tomato juice. Cover and heat to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer gently until vegetables are soft, 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender and puree; add salt to taste. Serve hot. Makes 4 small or 2 large servings.
