    I think this is one of the best soups I have ever tasted.

    Smoky black bean and roast tomato soup (Free on Green/EE

    For the salsa:
    1 small red onion, very finely chopped
    100g sweetcorn kernels
    1 red chilli, deseeded & finely chopped
    juice of 1/2 a lime
    small bunch of coriander, leaves only, finely chopped

    For the soup:
    12 whole tomatoes
    2 red onions, chopped
    3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    2 tsp chipotle paste
    1tsp dried oregano
    1 tbsp cumin seeds
    700g cooked black eyed beans (you can either use 700g tinned or soak dried ones overnight - about 200-250g dry weight)
    750 ml veg stock
    juice of 1/2 a lime

    - Soak beans overnight if you are using dried ones
    - When ready to cook heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5
    - Cut tomatoes in half, lay cut-side up on a baking tray, sprinkle with salt, spray with Fry Light and roast for 30 mins
    Next make the salsa:
    - Fry onion in Fry Light for 5 min until soft
    - Add sweetcorn & chilli and cook on high until start to go brown
    - Take off the heat, season with salt, pepper and lime juice and set aside
    - Next do soup - cook onions in Fry Light until translucent (but not brown), add garlic, chipotle paste, oregano and cumin seeds and cook for 5 min until cumin fragrant.
    - Add tomatoes, beans and veg stock, bring to the boil and simmer for 30 min. Season with salt, pepper and lime juice then liquidise in a blender.
    - Add coriander to the salsa
    - Season soup to taste, top with a spoonful of salsa and serve

    This recipe was gorgeous and I am not a great soup fan. It is definitely definitely worth doing the salsa to go with it.
