    Fry onions just untill softened, add spices in including sugar, not lemon juice

    Add tin of tomatoes and chop up a bit,

    Take out a couple of ladles and blend, put back in with soup add few drops lemon juice and hay hoe, you can add other kind of white tins of beans, it's what I have in the pantry , just easy as we all have tins ect so no brainer!

  • Hi Tracey nearly a month in the bag is brilliant! Hope you enjoy your new room I have frequented it many times :eek: the soup sounds delicious too, I have found a nice recipe for an Italian pasta soup to do in the slow cooker, ideal in the holidays because I put it on in the morning and if we go out with kids it's ready for lunch when we get back :) x

  • Oh sound lovely, I do love slow cookers, and so cheap to run , sounds nice? What's is it you cook? .

    Yes feeling better this afternoon noon, so fingers crossed can only go forward as going back is not a option for me.:)

    Hi Donna.

    If you like west Indian food you should check out my goat curry recipe, it's on a thread best food recipes.

    I've neaver given it to anybody apart from this forum, it cooks brilliant in a slow cooker:D

  • Will be checking that out my lovely. Thanks love food. :)

  • Thanks for the store cupboard chickpea soup recipe too Tracey- looks lovely and I have again copied out for my file. :). I make a chickpea and chorizio stew with very similar ingredients and will probably make a batch of the soup too next time I make the stew.

    Beer's goat curry recipe is in my file too though I haven't made it yet. Funnily enough, was discussing goat curry with a fellow foodie at work just the other day. I could eat a plateful right now I can tell you. :D

    Mina- glad you're OK and still with us. :)
