A quick and unfussy soup of sweet tomato and capsicum (bell/sweet pepper), chickpeas (garbanzo beans) and smoked paprika. Requires little more than pantry staples. Half an hour (tops) and you’ll be slurping down a bright red bowl of goodness.
Two recipes in one: a warm, chunky caponata-style salad of eggplant, zucchini, tomato, red onion, olives and fresh herbs; and a chilli bean dish with caponata-style vegies. Take one or both and you’ve got a peasant’s feast in no time at all. Serve the salad as a side or the beans as a main. Warming autumnal fare.
