Recipe 1 – Spicy carrot and chick pea soup

19 Feb

It’s the end of the week and the cupboards are looking bare….. Here’s a simply delicious carrot and chickpea soup recipe made with almost no ingredients.


5 medium carrots

1 potato

1 tin of chick peas

½ tsp dried crushed chillies

1 garlic clove

Rind of 1 lemon

½ tsp coriander seeds

2 litres stock/bouillon

1 tbsp oil



Heat the oil and add chopped garlic clove, chilli, lemon, and coriander. Fry for a couple minutes. Mmmmmmm. Now add your carrot and potato which has been grated. Stir to combine and heat through. You might want to turn the heat down a little before you add the first litre of stock. Add stock! Stir again and put a lid on the pan. Let your ingredients simmer for 15 mins and then add your tin of chick peas…..salt and pepper to taste. Cook for a further 15 mins and then take off the heat to cool.

Once it’s cooled blend and add half the 2nd litre of stock. Add the rest to until it’s your preferred consistency.

Soups up!
