About this recipe: This heart-warming soup is perfect for a chilly evening. It's packed full of vegetables and mixed pulses, making it an excellent source of fibre. Enjoy it with some crusty French bread to mop up the delicious liquid.
*Canned mixed pulses contain soya, pinto, black-eye, red kidney and aduki beans, and chickpeas. If unavailable, use any combination of these beans or just a single type. Rinse thoroughly in a sieve under cold running water to remove as much salt as possible. *Add chilli powder according to your own preference. True chilli powder is very fiery so you only need a little. Chilli seasonings are blends of spices which usually include cumin and are milder, so you could add up to 1 tbsp and omit the separate cumin. *A 750g jar of tomato passata could be used instead of the combined canned tomatoes and tomato juice, with a little extra stock as needed.
