    This is my take on a Jamie Oliver recipe. Its the most delicious soup ive ever had I think and really warming and filling.

    150grm piece of Chorizo
    50grm pancetta or bacon
    1 large or 2 medium onions
    2 cloves garlic
    1kilo fresh tomatoes
    2 or 3 stalks celery
    500grm fresh spinach
    3 pints (or 2 litres) chicken or veg stock
    2 cans chickpeas
    3 eggs

    Take 150gr piece of spanish chorizo sausage, cut into small cubes and fry in about a tblsp of olive oil with 50g of chopped pancetta or bacon.

    Chop 2 medium or 1 large onion, and 2 cloves garlic, add to the chorizo mix, and fry gently for around 10 minutes till the onion has softend.

    Chop 2 or 3 sticks celery and around a kilo of fresh tomatoes, and drain 2 cans of chickpeas and add to the pan.

    Make up 3 pints of chicken or veg stock and add to the soup.

    Let all this come to simmer and cook for about 40 minutes.

    In the meantime hardboil 3 eggs and then cool.

    After 40 minutes take the soup off the heat and blitz it with a wand liquidiser so that about half the soup gets finely chopped, then add 500grm spinach and bring back to the boil for a few minutes to cook the spinach through, then blitz the soup again for a couple seconds.

    Grate or finely chop the hard boiled eggs and stir into the soup.

    Makes about 8 portions and around 300 cals a bowl.

    This is no wimpy snack soup, its a full on full flavoured main course offering and really good. The hard boiled egg really adds to the texture of it.
