Soup is such a yummy, healthy winter lunch but sometimes it can seem an effort to make from scratch. This soup is probably the most simple I’ve made and it tastes amazing. It’s a good source of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, plus a source of fibre and protein.
Recipe adapted slightly from Donna Hay Magazine June/July 2011
1 onion, finely chopped
4 cloves crushed garlic
1 teaspoon cumin
1 stick of cinnamon
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1.5 tablespoons harissa paste
2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
1 400g can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2.5 cups chicken stock
Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium head and add the onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes. Add the cumin, cinnamon stick, smoked paprika and harrisa baste and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, chickpeas and chicken stock and bring to the boil and cook for 10 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick. Top with yoghurt and coriander to serve. Makes 4 servings.
Serve with crusty bread spread with Philadelphia and a touch of harissa.
