Spicy Chorizo, Sweet Potato and Mixed Bean Soup
  1. Preheat the oven to 160’C
  2. In a large saucepan or casserole pot, heat the oil and the fry the chorizo until it has a slightly crispy edge. Add the onions to the pot for 2 minutes to soften slightly and then add the remaining vegetables, potato and the garlic. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring regularly and then pour the remaining ingredients into the pot. Bring the mixture to the boil, cover and place in the oven to cook for at least an hour – the longer the better.
  3. Serve hot with a lovely crusty baguette and butter (and some cheese if you are addicted like me.)
