Prep + cooking time: 10 minutes (give or take for boiling the soup)
Level: Very EasyWhat you'll Need:
2 cans of chopped tomatos (Napolina is a good brand)
1 tablespoon Smoked Paprika powder (pictured*, La Chinata)
Half an orange pepper, chopped
1 can of mixed Pulses (it's more of a hearty mix than mixed beans, but you can still use this.)
1-2 teaspoons of chilli flakes (depending on how spicy you want it)
1 tablespoon caster sugar (to balance out the chilli and acidity in the tomatoes)
1 cube of Vegitable stock (knorr do a great one), in 500ml boiling water
A handful of plum tomatoes
Optional but a great serving suggestion: Cholla bread with white sesame. It goes PERFECTLY for dipping in.
A blender, saucepan and a wooden spoon 8D
Take one can of the chopped tomatoes, and half the can of mixed pulses (drained and rinsed lightly)
and pour in 200ml of the Vegitable stock, followed by the plum tomatoes, and blitz them in your blender
Pour this into a large saucepan with the rest of the pulses, tomatoes, chopped orange pepper and the remaining stock.
Set your hob on a medium heat, and just give everything a good stir.
After about a minute or two cooking, add in the chilli, paprika and sugar, and stir it in thoroughly.
Bring this all to a soft boil and then turn down the heat to low, simmering for another 2 minutes.
Do a taste test, add any more chilli or sugar (not too much though!!) to your liking, and then serve.
I enjoyed my soup with a chunk of Cholla bread, and I think any crusy roll (or perhaps toast) will go with this.
GET COOKING!! ^_____^
