Spicy chorizo chunky soup

After having to de-ice my car at the beginning of the week it’s definitely ‘that time of year again’. The shutter stays down in the gym and the trainers swap shorts for thermals! Stay warm with this simple spicy chorizo chunky soup…

This recipe makes around 4-5 servings, enough for the family or to freeze ready for lunches.

What you need:

1/2 spicy chorizo ring (slices cut into quarters)
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 large red onion
1 parsnip
2 carrots
1 beef stock cube
1 chicken stock cube
1 large sweet potato
100g butter beans (optional)
A few handfuls of spinach leaves
2 x 400g tin tomatoes
4 chopped garlic cloves
Table spoon ground pepper
Tea spoon chilli flakes
Pinch of curry powder (spices can be changed)

What to do:

1 – Peel and chop vegetables into a large pan, throw in all ingredients.
2 – Add water by refilling tomato tins to get the left over juice.
3 – Place on hob at a high heat. Bring to the boil for 10 mins, occasionally stirring.
4 – Reduce heat and simmer for 60mins or until vegetables are soft/soup thickens. Stirring throughout.
5 – Remove from heat. I decide not to blend as I like a crunch when eating, it psychologically satisfies my hunger (and means less washing up!).

Bowl/Tupperware up and enjoy!
