Beautiful soup with very interesting,eathy flavours. I left out the braod beans & added a frozen blocks of spinach. Smell is amazing, a real winter warmer.

great soup! I added lamb pieces which gave the soup nice stock and complimented the chickpeas well. I'll definitely make it again!

I also added the Chorizo and harissa, but I left out the oil, as there is enough fat in the chorizo to fry the onions and celery. This makes it healthier too. I also replaced the broadbeans with soya beans and didn't really notice the difference, although Soya beans are meant to be very good for you. This soup keeps for a couple of days in the fridge, and tastes even better when reheated. I love it!!!

Delicious soup, but I don't like broad beans so diced a courgette and added that instead. Really good for lunch on a cold day. Have passed the recipe on to several friends and work colleagues already.

Really tasty and unusual soup and smells amazing whilst you are cooking it.

I did it with broad beans the first time round as I happened to have some in the freezer. Second time round, no broad beans but plenty of curly kale so that went in instead. Both versions were very good!

Very tasty and filling. Quick to make and makes a great lunch to take to work. I added a red pepper and harissa paste.

A lovely soup for a cool day. I added haricots verts, carrots, a pepper and a chili to the veg, a heaped tablespoon of sambal oelek and some creme fraiche in the end. Tasted great!

I forgot to rate it too! Gets a 4 for me, but only because I had to take out the beans!

I left out the broad beans too, and think this is yummy. I use loads of soup recipies for work, and always end up with a crowd of people round my desk peering in to see what today's offering is!

Kat24k - 400g is the size tin that if you make two fists with your hands, and then put them on top of each other.....sort of that size if you are with me!!

Souper!!
This soup is so easy to make. I make a big pot of it and have it for lunch every day.
One time I ran out of broad beans so I used organic 4-bean mix instead. Really good too!
