I wouldn’t call it a cleansing soup, but there is something incredibly comforting and healing about this deep red pot of sausagey soup – it seems to make all worries disappear. Simple as it is, I think this is one of the best flavour combinations in the world. The tomatoes and peppers offer sweetness and a little acidity. The chickpeas give body and a buttery flavour, which perfectly complements the acidic tomatoes and sweet peppers. And chorizo….what’s not to love about this spicy, paprika-infused Spanish pork sausage that has the the warmth to lift your spirits immediately? So don’t wait any longer, make it tonight.
For me, the success of a bowl of soup is as much about the texture as it is about flavour. Don’t get me wrong, I do like the smooth and velvelty soups but it gives me extra pleasure to have something I can sink my teeth into. This soup delivers on both fronts and brings it to the next nourishing level.
The beauty of making soups is that they are wonderfully versatile so feel free not to include chorizo for an equally delicious vegetarian option.
