1 Tbs. olive oil
2 tsp. Spanish paprika

2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp. basil
2 cups chopped, peeled winter squash, sweet potato, or pumpkin
1 tsp. salt

1 stalk celery, chopped
dash of cayenne
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 bay leaf
1 green or red pepper, chopped
1 Tbs. tamari
1 15 oz can garbanzo beans
3 cups stock or water

In a soup kettle, sauté onions, garlic, celery and sweet potatoes in olive oil for about 5 minutes. Add seasonings, except tamari, and the stock or water. Simmer, covered, about 15 minutes. Add remaining vegetables and beans. Simmer another 10 minutes or so – until the vegetables are tender. Add tamari and serve.
