300g carrots, chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes

750ml vegetable stock (from a cube is ok)

Extra-virgin olive oil

Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, to garnish

Large frying pan

Hand held blender (optional)

A simple soup, no matter how humble the ingredients, can be a thing of true beauty, especially on a cold, January day. The best thing about making soups from scratch is just how adaptable they are. You can chop and change the recipe depending on what you have and this recipe takes the classic tomato soup up a gear in the flavour stakes.

 

Fry the chorizo in a large pan over a medium heat until it is golden and has released its lovely spicy oil. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Add the onion, celery and carrots to the chorizo oil in the pan, reduce the heat and gently fry for another 3–4 minutes.
Add the garlic, paprika, chilli powder and cumin and fry for a further minute. Add the tomatoes and stock, stir well and season with a little salt and pepper.
Add the chorizo and chickpeas to the pan, holding back a handful for a garnish, and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10–15 minutes.

TOP TIP

You can blend this with a hand held blender at this point if you prefer smooth soups. I like this one chunky!
Ladle into bowls and add a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, the reserved chorizo and chickpeas, a good grinding of black pepper, and a little chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley to serve.
