Spicy Bean Soup

Spicy Bean SoupIt’s always a good idea to have a few tins of beans stored away in the cupboard. They come in handy for so many different dishes. Although I usually end up throwing mine in with a slow cooker recipe, they also taste great in a soup.

I spiced this recipe up with a few spices, cumin, coriander and chilli powder. Not too much – but enough to add a spicy edge.

Spicy Bean Soup

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 400 ml passata
  • 400 g red kidney beans

Instructions

  1. Optional: Add 1tbsp olive oil to your soup maker if it has a saute function. If it doesn’t, saute separately in a pan. Add the onions, and garlic and gently cook for 5 minutes. During the last 30 seconds add the spices and stir.
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients to your soup maker and stir to combine. Ensure you don’t go above the MAX line in your soup maker. If needed, top up to the MIN line with stock/hot water.
  3. Put the lid on and select the smooth or chunky setting, depending on your preferences.

I've only recently bought a soup maker, and I'm loving your recipes. Could a tin of chickpeas be added to this? Do you think it's worth it?

@Liana Green, Thanks for that. It turned out that the tin in the cupboard was of cannellini beans, so I added them instead. I made the soup in my MR Total Control soup maker, selecting the medium texture. It was beautiful and thick, and very, very tasty. I might try adding a little more chilli powder next time, because I favour extra heat in most things.

Hi John - you could add a tin of chickpeas, that sounds like a great idea! It will create a thicker soup though - let me know if you make it!
