Spicy Bean Tomato and Sausage Soup

Whether it’s served up as a starter or as a simple main, this soup delivers spoonful after spoonful of tastiness. Its deep flavours are surprisingly quick to achieve. Rich tomato blends deliciously with garlic and onion, whilst the chunky chorizo and black eyed beans make it a substantial bowl of goodness. Serve with crusty white bread and flora buttery to mop up every last drip.
