This recipe was submitted by Nick; “If you want something filling but still healthy, adding a can of pulses to a can of soup is a really good option. Butter beans or cannellini beans work brilliantly with an Italian soup like Minestrone, but I also use canned lentils with vegetable soup, or chickpeas with a spiced soup like pumpkin. Easy fast and minimal washing up!”
