    A truly simple, easy and delicious spicy soup. All my friends that have tried it - love it. It's a great meal on it own or as a starter served in smaller portions. It also has the bonus of making me look like I know what I'm doing and sets the standard for a great evening. The recipe has been amended from the basic red lentil soup with bits added.

    This simple, wholesome soup, typical of the cooking of Tuscany, makes a delicious starter. It is very easy to prepare, although you need to soak the dried beans ahead of time. Should you forget, you can use canned beans to make the quick version suggested in Some more ideas, below. Serve with warm ciabatta or rustic bread.

    This isn't your usual chilli con carne. Black beans and turkey mince make for a delicious twist on the classic. This hearty soup is an easy - and healthy - way to feed a crowd, and also freezes well. Top with grated Cheddar.
