Jules, we enjoyed this for lunch with fresh bread and butter. I used 1 chilli (ours are super hot) and the three teaspoons of paste. Another chilli would have blown our heads off ;-) I had to use dried thyme but it worked ok. *editing to add we ate the leftovers 2 days later with fresh chopped coriander and a good squeeze of lime juice stirred through. I thought this gave the flavour a huge lift and complimented the sweetness and spiciness really well.

Made this for tonight's tea! This is a DEFINATE keeper for me! Used red onion as is personal taste too! LOVE the "YEA HA" kick of chilies too! Sauteed veggies in stock TRUE! OH, used chicken stock instead of veggie as was "on the list" to use up for you know who! THANKS!

I made up this lovely soup to serve cold rather than hot. It was certainly not lacking in flavour and spicy enough. Served in cups with a little dollop of greek yoghurt and some minced parsley. It was very pretty and very good.
