“Rich in flavour and texture, and very yummy when you want something satisfying to fill you up without fattening you up. Based in part on an African bean soup recipe. This is one of my favourites because the spices combine to make a special flavour that I can't put my finger on (in other words, I don't think gee, lots of garlic in that).”
