Getting home close to 7pm on a week night never puts one in much of a mood for  standing over a stove for 2 hours stirring,  sifting, reducing etcetera etcetera.  The lure of the microwave dinner or worse the chipper can be just too great. Therefore I tend to go for recipes that are are not overly complicated & that are relatively quick to make.

This is never more the case than when you’re feeling a little under the weather as myself & the ninja were last week. This warm spicy soup is brilliant for just such a night. It’s super easy & the chickpeas & kidney beans give it a lovely hearty texture so it feels like a full meal.
