Recipe - Tortilla-less Tortilla Soup for the Sick Person's Soul

Tom's Kitchen: A Spicy-Hot Soup to Crush Your Cold | Mother Jones:
1 medium onion, chopped*
Olive oil for sauteing
1 head garlic, cloves separated and chopped fine
3-4 small hot chile peppers, chopped (fresh are best, but dried ones like chipotles and chiles de arbol work great, too. Just rehydrate them in hot water for a few minutes before chopping. )
1 tablespoon dried oregano and/or thyme*
1 28-32 oz can or jar of organic whole tomatoes or tomato puree (I use home-canned tomatoes)
1 can garbanzo beans (cook them from scratch by all means; but if you're doing poorly, don't be shy about opening a can), drained*
Sea salt

Limes—enough for half a lime for each serving
Some good but not fancy melting cheese—I use Organic Valley Sharp Cheddar—grated, about ¼ cup per bowl of soup
1 bunch of something green—preferably cilantro, but parsley works well too—chopped
Chopped red cabbage, about 1 cup*
Avocado slices*

* Optional ingredients

Sounds yummy, go on over to see how to put it together
