Cabbage, chickpea and bacon soup

This is practically a stew!

1 packet lardons
1 large onion
1 clove garlic
2 potatoes
2/3 small white cabbage
1 tin chickpeas
2 pints water
1 thingy Knorr vegetable Stock Pot
1 Parmesan rind
A little grated Parmesan to garnish

Put lardons in casserole and cook gently until fat runs. Now add chopped onion and garlic, and stir well. Add the potatoes cut into 1-2 cm cubes (don't peel them unless the skin is seriously manky), the cabbage and the chickpeas. Stir again, then add the stock, water, seasoning and Parmesan rind. Bring to boil and simmer for about 10 minutes.

This was based on a recipe in 101 Cookbooks, but I adapt it to suit my needs every time!
