Black eyed bean soup with tahini and greens

So, it’s ages since we’ve published a recipe, shame on us! But we’ve cooked plenty of delicious things over the last few weeks, and we’re getting the recipes written up for those.

But the most recent thing I cooked is this lovely soup. It’s fairly quick, super easy, and very very tasty.

The tahini gives the broth a lovely deep flavour which works particularly well with the smoked paprika, and all the flavours come together to give an extremely satisfying result.

Black eyed bean soup with tahini and greens

 

Serves 3 – 4

 


120 g black eyed beans

1 heaped tbsp. light tahini

2 tbsp finely chopped ginger

1 tbsp smoked paprika

10 cherry tomatoes, quartered

150 g mushrooms, chopped

1.1 litres hot water

180 g mixed greens (I used 30 g frozen spinach and 150 g mixed cabbage from a supermarket pack)

2 tbsp tamari (or a pinch of salt)

black pepper

15 g fresh coriander, chopped

 


Rinse the beans and add them to a large saucepan along with the tahini, ginger, smoked paprika, tomatoes, mushrooms and water. Bring to a simmer and cook, partially covered, until the beans are just tender. Mine took 30 minutes. Add the greens to the soup and simmer for a further 10 minutes.

Season with tamari and black pepper to taste, and stir through the coriander just before serving.
