  1. Drain the chick peas and discard any loose skins. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a large soup pot and sauté the garlic and leek for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add the water, chickpeas, carrots, celery, oregano, rosemary, and 2 bay leaves. Boil for 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Remove bay leaves and stir in the greens and salt. Gently simmer, uncovered, until the greens are cooked until very soft, about 5 minutes for beet greens and chard, and about 12 minutes for escarole and kale. Blend in batches and add back to the pot.
