Spicy Winter Vegetarian Bean Soup Recipe

This is a warming, chunky soup full of wonderful aromas. You can easily bulk it out with some diced courgettes and aubergines if they are hanging around in your fridge.


  1. 1 medium onion chopped
  2. 1 tablespoon Suma Olive Oil and some extra for serving – GT018
  3. 1 large carrot finely chopped
  4. 1 red pepper chopped
  5. 2 tins Suma Chopped tomatoes – LJ080
  6. 1 tin Suma Aduki Fairly traded beans – VF730
  7. 1/2 teaspoon Chilli Powder – HE371
  8. 1 teaspoon Turmeric – HE394
  9. 1 teaspoon Paprika – HE386
  10. 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon – HE166
  11. 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper ground – HE163
  12. 1 heaped teaspoon vegetable stock powder


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large saucepan and add the chopped onion. Gently cook the onion for 15 minutes until translucent and the sugars in the onion have been released. Add the carrots, cook for a further 5 minutes and then add the red pepper and cook for 5 minutes more.
  2. Now put all the spices into the pan, gently cook for one minute before adding the tomatoes and stock powder. Cover with a lid and cook gently for a further 15 – 20 minutes. Add the drained beans and heat through for a few minutes. Allow to cool slightly before serving, swirl a little more oil into each bowl, the aromas of the warming spices and oil together will conjure up a Moroccan evening in the Medina in Marrakesh.

  1. Well done Rowena, a fantastic soup for this cold winter we’ve had this year, thoroughly enjoyed it ….. Is it just sheer coincidence ….. & has anyone else noticed how cold its got since Suma starting stocking Frozen Goods ? You’re not leaving those Freezer doors open in Elland are you?
