Spicy Moroccan Soup

This cheery coloured soup is bursting with flavour, nutrients and fragrance. It is also very easy to make, using just one pot, a knife and a chopping board. (The less washing up the better!) Moreover, it makes use of store-cupboard basics so it is inexpensive to make.

Ingredients

  1. ½ tbsp coconut oil
  2. 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  3. 2 large sweet potatoes, diced into small cubes
  4. 2 red peppers, diced into small cubes
  5. 3 tsp ground coriander
  6. 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
  7. 1.4L stock (I use vegetable bouillon powder)
  8. ½ tbsp tomato puree
  9. 1 can (235g) of black-eyed beans
  10. Juice from half a lemon
  11. 2 large red onions, finely chopped
  12. 3 celery sticks, finely chopped into small cubes
  13. 1 large carrot, diced into small cubes
  14. 2.5 tsp ground turmeric or Vitalising superpowder
  15. 3 tsp ground cumin
  16. 1 red chilli, finely chopped (de-seeded if required) or 1/4-1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes or powder depending on how hot you like it
  17. 1 tbsp soya sauce or tamari
  18. 1 can (400g) chopped tomatoes
  19. Optional: 3 tbsp protein powder (e.g. pea protein, soya bean protein)
  20. 20g fresh coriander, finely chopped. (Reserve some for the garnish).
  21. Optional: A sprinkle of ground flaxseed for garnish

Method

 

  • In a deep pot, melt the coconut oil. Then add the chopped onions, garlic and celery. Cook for 5 mins until the onion is soft.
  • Add the diced sweet potato, carrot and peppers. Sauté for a further 5 mins.
  • Stir in the spices, chilli or chilli flakes/ powder, stock, soya sauce or tamari, tomato puree, chopped tomatoes and black-eyed beans. Bring to the boil and then allow to simmer on a low heat for 15-20 mins, until the vegetables are tender.
  • Stir in the protein powder, if using.
  • Stir in the lemon juice and ¾ of the chopped fresh coriander. Ladle into bowls and garnish with the remaining chopped coriander and sprinkle of ground flaxseed if desired. Enjoy!
