Chunky Chickpea and Chorizo Soup

Chunky Chickpea and Chorizo Soup

Posted 2013-11-21 by Sarah Bfollow
This is a quick version of a Spanish favourite. The Chorizo adds a wonderful smokey, slightly spicy flavour to the soup, but can be omitted if you can't get your hands on any at short notice and you still want to experience this wonderfully warming soup.

Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 2-3 servings

Ingredients
1 medium brown onion
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil

[ADVERT]1 can chickpeas
1 can crushed tomatoes
500ml water with 1 teaspoon chicken stock

Method
  • Chop onion and crush garlic. Put into a pot with the olive oil and fry on a medium heat until onions are translucent.

  • While frying, prepare chorizos or sausages by squeezing a small amount out of casing at a time, to make little meat balls out of the meat.

  • Once onions are translucent, put chorizo meatballs into the pot with onions to brown.

  • At this point, you can drain and rinse the chickpeas and put them in the pot too.

  • Next put the tin of crushed tomatoes in with the mix, and the water with chicken stock. Set this to simmer gently with a lid on the pot while you prepare the carrot and zucchini into diced pieces. Drop these in along with salt, pepper, cumin and corriander powder and put the lid on for another 10 minutes to simmer gently.
