This first course soup packs a fibre punch due to the navy beans. Don’t forget to drain the beans after cooking them or the soup will be watery. Serve with hearty wholegrain bread and some crudités to turn it into a main course. Never salt the water when cooking dried beans, or the beans will not fully soften.
Fragrant White Bean Soup
Roasted Tomato Soup with Cheesy Flatbread
Roasting tomatoes is a perfect use for over-ripe tomatoes that are too mushy to use any other way. You can use roasted tomatoes in a sandwich, in a pasta dish, or as here, in a home-made tomato soup. You can use smoked paprika in this soup, if you’d like. Tomatoes are a wonderful source of the anti-oxidant lycopene.
Butternut Squash & Black Bean Chowder
Fall flavours of squash, sage and corn make this a wonderful cold weather meal. Pancetta gives this hearty vegetable chowder a lift.
Black Bean, Tomato and Lime Soup
Beans and lime juice give this soup a south of the border feel. You can use fresh or canned plum tomatoes. Serve with cornbread, whole grain tortillas or other whole grain bread.

Creamy Tomato-Orange Soup
Don’t be put off by “creamy”- this soup isn’t heavy or thick like a traditional cream soup. Its refreshing orange twist accentuates the pure tomato flavour.
