You know those days when you feel like rubbish, the wind is howling, it’s pouring with rain and you just want to wrap yourself up in a blanket and eat soup!?
Well, today is one of those days, and I have found the yummiest, most comforting soup EVER!
On their website, Glorious Foods say about the soup:
“We love the West African combination of Spices from the east combined with nuts and pulses from the west. A genuine melting pot of ingredients.
We have used a Chicken Thigh to give more flavour along with ground peanut and almost Indian style curry spices. Along with the black eye beans, this is a rich and warming combination.”
I’ll be honest – they are spot on with that one, it was delicious, and definitely ‘rich and warming.’
I love ‘meal soups’ because they’re full of texture – and this one didn’t disappoint. There was chunks of potatoes, rice, bits of chicken, peppers and peanuts all in the mix which made it really filling.
The peanut flavour wasn’t overpowering – it added a subtle undertone to the spices and had a bit of a kick – the boost I needed to try get rid of this cold!
For me, soup really is the ultimate comfort food – warm, tasty, with a bit of a kick and oozing flavour, this is the perfect pick me up.
