spicy chorizo and cannellini bean soup

My sister-in-law Ann mentioned chorizo soup yesterday and listed off a few ingredients. Here’s a stab at it without tasting. Proportions may need adjusting:

1 large onion chopped
2 cloves garlic chopped
1 level tsp each of coriander and fennel seed
1 level tsp chilli flakes
shredded zest of 1/4 small orange
1.5 chorizo sausages
2 cans tomatoes
1 can cannellini beans rinsed
3 cans (1.2l) stock

Just cook like you’d expect to.

OK, I’ve tasted it now …

The Verdict:

Tastes pretty good, nice and smokey/chorizoey. It could do with upping the bean proportion, so 2 cans of cannellinis. I used one can of cherry tomatoes and one of crushed, forget about the cherry toms and go straight for 2 of crushed. You’ll taste the fennel coming thorough and the occasional coriander seed which complements the orange zest nicely. Overall pretty good as a winter soup. Might be nice chilled for the summer, but we’ll just have to wait to see …
