This is a quick and easy supper, that is lovely and filling, and uses mainly store cupboard ingredients. Serves two hungry people, or any leftovers can be heated up the next day for lunch.

Tostadas comes from the Spanish word for toasted – in Mexico it refers to flat, crisply toasted corn tortillas, topped with all sorts of savoury things. Poached chicken with beans and salad is a favourite. A base layer of a thick mixture – often refried beans, but here a spicy pepper and tomato mixture – keeps everything together.

This thick and hearty vegetable soup flavoured with pancetta and Parmesan cheese rind will warm any cold day. This minestrone is almost more like a vegetable stew than a soup, so enjoy it as a main.
