Published Monday, 24 August, 2009 by Zoe

Easy to make soup (I'm only 15) and surprisingly filling



  • 1 small red onion (normal onions wud b fine 2 i guess)
  • 1 clove of garlic (you cud probably use garlic powder)
  • 200g of red kidney beans
  • half a teaspoon of mild chilli powder
  • (preferably you mite want to buy kidney beans in chilli sauce instead)
  • 400g can of chopped tomatos
  • 1 veg stock cube
  • and herbs if you want


1. peel/chop onion finely. peel/crush garlic.

2. cook onion and garlic for 5mins approx. until soft. (use oil or if you dont want the calories use some water)

3 open and drain can of kidney beans in sieve/colander. rinse under cold tap.

4. add beans and chilli powder and tomatoes. stir well.

5. add 150 ml (1/4 pint) of boiling water to stock cube(crumbled) in measuring jug. stir.

6. pour into pan. turn up the heat so it boils. once boiling turn down so that it bubbles gently.

7. put a lid on the ban. bubble for about 10 mins. stir occasionally to stop sticking.

8. laddle in to bowls and enjoy =D

and yes i know this isnt quick but i thought it might get more views :P
