Heat the oil in a medium soup pot and sauté the garlic and shallots for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the celery and red pepper flakes. Sauté another 1 to 2 minutes. Add the kombu dashi or soup stock, rosemary, bonito flakes, chickpeas, rice, tomatoes and sea salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the flame to medium-low and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove half of the ingredients and puree in a blender or food processor. Return the puree to the soup pot. Season with black pepper, add more sea salt if desired and add the chopped spinach. Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes. Serve hot.
