Moringa - Chickpea Vegetable Soup / Healthy Soup / Diet Soup

Hi friends, this is exam time....my son is preparing for his 10th board exams...all mom's and kids are so busy in preparing for exam...and cooking during this period seems so difficult but the kids need good nutritional food and also the food should be lite and at the same time tasty...much care is needed on the health of the kid at this time...mom's also stressed and they also need good food...soup is very ideal and good alternate at this time...but preparing healthy soup is a must...there is lot of varieties branded soup mixes in the shop...i tried some of them but I am afraid of using at the hour of exam..
My son and me have less time for eating and after teaching him I too feel exhausted...going for cool fruit juices also risky at this time but the kid need energy for long hours and I feel hot nutritious soup will be better...I tried varieties of soups and its easy for me also...we  have plenty of time for studies and prepare lite food and somehow manage...
my friend vimala announced "5 INGREDIENT FIX CHALLENGE"FOR MARCH MONTH...
 The Ingredients are:
VEGETABLES OR MEAT,ONE GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLE(KEERAI),HOMEMADE STOCK,ANY KIND OF PULSES,OLIVE OIL...

For this March month challenge , iam posting my son's favorite moringa chick pea soup which is delicious and nutritious...I used moringa leaves, Homemade Vegetable Stock, chickpea, potato/broccoli and olive oil... the 5 ingredients given for the contest...the soup not only nutritious but delicious too...preparing and refrigerating the vegetable stock in large quantity will be easier to make soup at the exams time... but daily fresh preparation of stock will be better. please try and feed back me.
