  • 1¬†-2 shallots
  • 1 can of beans (doesn’t have to be 5 bean, could be any bean really, the key is to have fibre)
  • 1 can of tomatoes
  • A dash of worcester sauce
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of mild chilli powder
  • 1 stock cube
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • A knob of butter
  • Your favourite chilli pepper

Fry the shallots, garlic and chilli and the chilli powder together in the butter for 10 minutes at a medium heat to let the flavours meet and greet each other. ¬†Put the kettle on and have a cup of chai tea while you wait… ūüėČ

Add the can of tomatoes and beans and cook for a further 20 minutes on a low heat, then blend thoroughly… ¬†Unfortunately, because I’m a stupid prick, I forgot to take a picture of that step.

Remember you can’t extract water without having to wait ages while it evaporates off from a soup so always make it with not enough water, as you can always add more at the blending stage to make it up to the consistency you like.

  1. Looks yummy! I love beans and I read somewhere recently that they have a component that helps with fat-burning. I only thought it was their fibre content that was valuable for weight loss as it keeps the hunger at bay.

    This is a recipe that I must try to get me away from my usual bean stew.
