1.  Prepare the potatoes, onions, carrots, tofu, ginger, and garlic.  Slice the potatoes, carrots, and tofu into cubes.

2.  In a large pot, add the broth, water, onion, carrots, tofu, ginger, garlic, potatoes, salt and pepper.  I prefer Pacific low sodium vegetable broth.  Stir and bring to a boil.  Cover with a lid and bring to a simmer for 25 min, until potatoes and carrots are fork tender. 

3.  Add the chickpeas (drained and rinsed), and greens (roughly chopped).  return the lid and simmer an additional 10 minutes.  Taste and add any more salt and pepper if desired.  Add chili flakes at the end for a little spice. 

Enjoy!
