Spicy Moroccan Soup

Metabolic boosting chilli and spices are combined with fibre rich beans and pulses in this spicy soup.

I make this soup every few weeks and still love every mouthful of every single bowlful! As it's rich in protein and fibre it will fill you up and sustain you, ensuring you have a gorgeously level energy & mood. It's also packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients such as beans and pulses, ginger, garlic and turmeric to help keep you well.

Super nourishing and a joy to eat!
