Spicy Chorizo, Sweet Potato and Chickpea Soup

Since I am on a winter high, I decided to make another soup for dinner. I love love love soups! I can have them for lunch and dinner. Paired with a good bread roll, it doesn’t take much to make me a happy gal.

I like my soups really chunky though. It’s like I need to bite into something. If I’m not biting, my tummy doesn’t feel satisfied! Surely there is some form of research out there that says chewing helps sends messages/signals to the brain that one is eating or full!? hmmm…

I’m not sure where I get the inspiration of this soup from. Personally, I love a good puree soup. It gives you the creamy feeling without the fat! What I have added this time though, is chorizo. I used the Spanish chorizo which gives it a spicy flavour. This soup freezes well. Two portions were frozen and tasted wonderful even after 2 weeks.


Spicy Chorizo, Sweet Potato and Chickpea Soup (Serves at least 6)
2 spanish chorizo sliced
1 red onion sliced
around 1 kg of sweet potato diced
1 ltre of chicken stock-reduced salt
another 500 ml of water 
1 can of chickpea

Saute sliced chorizo. Drain on paper towel. Cook onions till soft and add sweet potato. Add stock and simmer till sweet potato are nearly cooked. Add 1/2 of the chorizo sausages. Cool.

Blend the mixture up-2 batches if needed. Pour mixture back into stock pot. Simmer again with chickpeas. Taste and season accordingly. Serve with slices of chorizos.
