  • 2 medium onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 can white beans
  • 1 can red beans
  • 500 ml vegetable broth
  • 1 can diced tomatoes I used Pomi tomatoes
  • 0.5 lemon only the zest
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 0.5 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 fresh chilli pepper or to taste

  • 0.5 tsp thyme
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar

Instructions: Spiced mixed beans soup

  • For this recipe I used canned diced tomatoes made by Pomi. Fragrant and intense. They are perfect for this recipe.
  • This step is optional but will give the soup an addition of smoked flavor. Peel the onions, put them on a fork and toast over the flame of the stove. The onion should not be burned but lightly toasted.
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add finely chopped onion and celery stalk and cook over a low heat for 2 – 3 minutes until the onion softens and becomes slightly transparent. Then add garlic (cut into strips) and chilli pepper (cut in half) and cook for another couple of minutes.
  • Now add two types of paprika, cumin, thyme, oregano and a pinch of salt. At this point add two types of beans (previously drained and rinsed). Stir and cook for another minute.
  • Stir in diced tomatoes and vegetable stock. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and cook over medium heat for another 20 minutes.
  • After this time, turn off the heat, add balsamic vinegar and lemon zest (I used half of a lemon). Taste and adjust with salt and pepper if necessary.
  • Take a cup of soup and blend it with the immersion blender.
  • Return the mixture into the soup, stir and serve immediately.
