The simplest, the yummiest spiced mixed bean soup. Intense, slightly smoky, spicy, sour at the right point thanks to the addition of tomatoes*, lemon zest and balsamic vinegar. Perfect for cold days.

Spiced mixed beans soup Directions

  1. For this recipe I used canned diced tomatoes made by Pomi. Fragrant, intense and tasty, perfect for this recipe.

  2. This step is optional but will give the soup an addition of smoked flavor. Peel the onions, put them on a fork and toast over the flame of the stove. The onion should not be burned but lightly toasted.

  3. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add finely chopped onion and celery stalk and cook over a low heat for 2 - 3 minutes until the onion softens and becomes slightly transparent. Add garlic (cut into strips) and chilli pepper (cut in half) and cook for another couple of minutes.
