Rainy days and cold winter weather calls for some nice soup.
First time making soup, I won’t call this amazing but it was satisfying. A simple tomato soup with cannellini beans, courgettes and turkey. I had it with a thick slice of cornbread. So good. The farmers’ market here is fantastic. Everything looks fresh and delicious it makes me crave for it right there and then!
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 of a courgette sliced and halved
1 slice of roast turkey breast/ham/bacon
100g of tinned tomatoes*
100g beans of your choice
10g pasta (optional)
250ml vegetable stock
1 lemon wedge
1. Heat oil in a small saucepan (you won’t need oil if you use bacon) and fry the onions. Add in the turkey/ham and fry for 1 minute. Then add in the courgette slices and fry until soft.
2. Add the beans, tomatoes, stock and pasta. Simmer for 8 minutes until the pasta is soft.
3. Squeeze lemon juice into the soup, season to taste and garnish with basil/coriander.
*or 2-3 small tomatoes or 1/2tbsp red pesto
