Method

Potatoes are a healthy and hearty addition to any soup. The potatoes in this soup combine with seasonal veg and tinned kidney beans to provide satisfying suppers or office lunch favourites.

Heat the oil in a large saucepan and gently fry the garlic, carrot, celery and potatoes for 3-4 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients and bring to the boil.

Simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Season to taste and sprinkle with the parsley to serve.

Alex Mackay's Roast King Edwards with Lamb Cutlets, Smoked Paprika, Peppers, Onions & Olives

"The first time I discovered smoked paprika was on roast potatoes served as tapas with smoked paprika mayonnaise. Before then, I'd assumed chorizo was spiced with plain paprika and then the whole sausage was smoked. It was a revelation and I've had a long lasting smoked paprika period since then. I serve the potatoes and pepper mixture with lamb as a little celebration of Spring."
