Zelda Pande's Rajma and Vegetable Soup is a hearty, healthy, red bean soup, that tastes marvellous, especially in chilly weather.

Those who like their meat may consider adding a sliced fried sausage to it.

Rajma and Vegetable Soup

Serves: 4



Note: This a very healthy soup with almost no oil. Should you want to gussy it up (and make it richer and less weight-watching) drizzle a little cream at the end and saute the onion and garlic in 1-2 tbsp butter instead of olive oil.

If you prefer, add one or two more vegetables, like half a red/green capsicum and/or, 3-4 mushrooms, finely chopped and/or 3 tbsp finely chopped parsley.

Meat lovers might prefer to add a chopped, fried large sausage to the soup when the tomato paste is added.
