  1. Carrots / Shallots / Ginger / Garlic / Roasted Bell Peppers - Prep as directed. Combine carrots, shallots and ginger in one container. Store garlic and bell peppers in separate containers. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead).
  2. Beans (both types) - Drain and rinse.


  1. Heat a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add oil and then carrots, shallots and ginger. Cook until translucent and aromatic, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic, cumin, coriander, thyme, red pepper flakes and some black pepper. Saute until spices are fragrant, 1 minute more.
  2. Add the bell peppers and tomato paste and stir to combine. Add sherry vinegar and scrape the bottom of the pan to free up any browned bits.
  3. Add stock and both types of beans and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes to let the flavors come together. Taste and season with lemon juice and some salt.
  4. Serve soup with a spoonful of yogurt stirred in at the table and crusty bread on the side. Enjoy!

We really liked this. I subbed allspice for the ginger as a dinner guest can't eat ginger. I can't wait to try it with the ginger. And it came together quite quickly.

This was the perfect combination of flavors--comforting and slightly exotic. Great for a cold day.

Needs to be heated a little longer and could tone down the spice next time but great for a cold rainy day!

Smelled great; tasted awful. Sour and slightly bitter; felt like it was missing something. Won't make again.
