    JustEmma's Note:

    This is a lovely comforting soup, lifted by the addition of chorizo sausage. A popular winter soup in our house. Time does not include soaking time for chickpeas (though you can use tinned to save the effort)

    • sliced almonds, toasted
    • single cream


    1. 1
      Soak the chickpeas on a bowl of water overnight, rinse and drain. You can used tinned chickpeas to skip this step, in which case just drain and rinse.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a soup pan, fry the chunks of Chorizo until beginning to crisp before adding the chickpeas and cooking for a further 3-4 minutes, stirring.
    3. 3
      Stud the onion with the whole cloves and add to the mixture in the pan along with the garlic and coriander.
    4. 4
      Pour enough water over to cover ingredients with about ¼ inch to spare, cover with pan lid and simmer for 2 hours, checking every now and then to make sure water doesn't evaporate and adding more if needed.
    5. 5
      Remove the clove studded onion and season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.
    6. 6
      Blend half the soup mixture until smooth, adding more water if necessary, then return to the pot, give a good mix and reheat.
    7. 7
      Whilst reheating, toast some almond flakes until lightly brown under the grill.
    8. 8
      Serve with a swirl of cream on the top and a sprinkling of the toasted, flaked almonds.
