must be ok, I thought, for every comment here but no good to me. What kinda cooks are we dealing with here?…easy way out?. Boil-up canned tomatoes with stuff thrown in. That's not a 5 star recipe. Tasteless and acidic.

Loved this soup. So quick and easy to make. Like a previous person, I left out the cabbage but added plenty of spinach at the end.

Very nice and filling, bit of a 'kick' to it, but lovely. Have made with & without cabbage and still delicious.

Have made this twice. First time, just not enough liquid in soup to go with crusty bread. Second time used 2 tins of tomatoes and 2 tins water. It was a bit runny so thickened with flour. Didn't have cabbage so sprinkled with some spring onion. Really easy to make and delicious.

I made the Indian version of this soup, bu I've used red cabbage instead of savoy cabbage, because this was what I had I the fridge. I think it would had worked better with savoy ot Bruxelles Cabbage, but I still liked it a lot. The only thing that need to be added it's some chilly flackes, because it's not spice enough for me, and especialy not for my fiance, who likes his food very hot.

I used dried butter beans as I had them in the cupboard, soaked overnight and cooked for about an hour. Like others have said I fried the chorizo first and then added a chopped onion, red and yellow peppers and a couple of cloves of garlic. I also added smoked paprika and spinach instead of cabbage. Great flavour but do use good quality uncooked Chorizo and good quality tomatoes - I like Cirio.

Really liked this recipe, so quick and simple yet really tasty. It's filling too and not too expensive to make. If you're looking for a quick, tasty dish then I recommend you give this a try

I put a few bits of chopped feta in the bottom of the plate and poured the spicy soup on top. Also topped it off with avocado slices and a little coriander.

I started frying a small onion, then garlic and chilli. Add the chorizo then chopped peppers. Then add the tomatoes and chickpeas and I used chard instead of cabbage. A lovely supper dish that packs a lot of punch.

This works equally well with any type of cabbage and I've also used kidney beans, borlotti beans, mixed beans and haricot beans with excellent results.
