In partnership with Kenwood.

This is my second recipe in collaboration with Kenwood, who have challenged me to get creative in the kitchen using the Kenwood Chef, a must-have for all you foodies as it allows you to have new culinary adventures with its selection of over 25 attachments, including pasta rollers and cutters, juicers, food processor attachment, blender and ice cream maker.

Today’s recipe is all about being inspired by African flavours, which I absolutely love.

I made a deliciously spiced soup/Stew flavoured with aromatic spices like cumin, ginger and cinnamon–Perfectly warming for this time of year. This is my version of a Moroccan Harira Soup, which is a tasty mix of beautifully spiced pulses and grains.

It’s really delicious and super healthy as it contains lots of vegetables, lentils, rice and chickpeas–lots of healthy plant-based proteins.

I love using the Kenwood Chef for whipping up pancakes, cakes etc but it’s also super convenient to use the attachments like the mini chopper to create flavoursome pastes as the base for curries, soups and stews.

That’s what I did here to create a flavoursome paste as the base of my soup–a mix of spices and garlic with a big handful of aromatic coriander.

This soup is the one pot complete meal I love. It’s so easy to make and tastes delicious. I hope you love it too.

  1. Has anyone skipped the tomatoes here? I’m really don’t care for them especially when cooked in chunks like this. Any ideas? Perhaps just as a few? I can’t really see them in the picture. Are they essential for flavor?

    I made this the other night and added 1 carrot to the onion and celery mix and it was delicious and wonderfully easy!! I will be making this again!
