I couldn’t be bothered to leave the house yesterday so decided to invent a soup out of the bits I already had in the fridge. This is what happened…

“Oh, I only have half an onion… Why do I have so many cans of butter beans? I don’t even like butter beans!… Oh wait, I have chick peas, yes! I swear I had some cumin?! No? REALLY?! Shit!… Oh wait, smoked paprika, that could be interesting… Maybe with some sweet potato?… No wait, they’re Isabelle’s… Half a bag of spinach could work though with some tinned tomatoes maybe? Yes, a smokey tomato chickpea broth… Hope I have some parmesan… YES I DO! Right, sorted, lets do it…
