This soup comes into its own the following day. Tasty and fresh and oh so filling.

Really nice soup. I will be taking this to work for a hearty lunch. I added chicken to this and like others some harissa for a bit of spice. I also used fresh tomatoes because I am not keen on tinned. It gives it a fresher, cleaner taste, very good.

Really nice & very filling, I did not have any broad beans so used a can of butter beans instead. Also used a chorizo sausage and some smoked bacon that I wanted to use up. Hubby takes this for work and he really loves it.

This was really nice and light for dinner. I left out the celery because I'm not a fan but it didn't seem to make any difference to the end product. Very nice with some bread for dunking in it :)

Tastes great, it reminds me of soup I had in Morocco. Good for when you have vegetarians and meat eaters.

I cooked the sliced chorizo in a different pan and keep it separate from the main soup. That way meat eaters can add the meat and the soup is still veggie. It's very filling with chorizo, so try not to have a lot of it before a main meal :).

This is a delicious store-cupboard soup! The whole family loves it, and it's really quick to make. I cook 2 cloves of crushed garlic with the onion and use ordinary tinned tomatoes instead of "tomatoes with garlic" (which also contains sugar and salt), and usually replace the broad beans with frozen sweetcorn. Yum!

One if my favourite soups now. Really does smell amazing whilst cooking. I'm not a fan of broad beans so I left those out.

Very tasty, will be making it again. I used peas as we had no broad beans - I think any veg would work

Fantastic soup! I added some extra spice just because my family like their food quite hot, but i tried the soup before the spice was added and it tasted amazing! Definitely taking some to work tomorrow, can't wait!

A delicious soup, the cumin works really well with all the flavours. I used canned lentils instead of chickpeas.

Lovely - perhaps a little strong on the lemon, think next time I'll use half
