Spicy Sunday Soup

Do you also despise Sunday evenings?  Well, here is a soup to help you beat those awful Sunday blues.  I realise that I am in quite a soup phase at the moment, but having just discovered how easy they are to make, I can't seem to get enough!  Bon appetit and have a good start to next week!

To serve 4 friends: 
2 chopped leeks
300 g of sliced chorizo
1/2 deseeded and chopped chilli
1 chopped sweet pepper
3 chopped carrots
smoked paprika
2 cloves of chopped garlic
1 chopped red onion
1 can of haricot beans
1 can of tomatos
1 bay leaf
0.5L vegetable stock
salt and pepper
olive oil

1. Heat a bit of olive oil in a big pot.  Add the red onion, chilli, chorizo and garlic. Fry for 2 minutes. 

2. Add the rest of the vegetables, 1 teaspoonful of smoked paprika, and the bay leaf.  Fry for a few minutes.

3.  Add the beans. Stir around before adding the tomatos and vegetable stock.  Bring it to a boil and then let it simmer for 20-30 minutes without a lid.

Serve with bread or just enjoy it on its own!  Add a tablespoonful of sour cream if it is too spicy for you.
