2 tbsp Mild olive oil
2 Smashed large garlic cloves
Small bunch of coriander stalks finely chopped, leaves picked
1 Lime, zested, and cut into wedges
2 tsp Cumin powder
1 tsp Chili flakes
400g Chopped tomatoes from a can
400g Washed and drained canned black beans
600ml Chicken broth
175g Kale, thick stalks removed and leaves shredded
250g Leftover roast or ready-cooked chicken
50g Crumbled feta cheese to serve
In a large saucepan, heat the oil, add the garlic, coriander stalks, and lime zest, and cook for 2 minutes or until aromatic. Add the cumin and chili flakes, cook for another minute, then add the tomatoes, beans, and stock.
Bring to a boil, then mash the beans against the pan's bottom with a potato masher. It will thicken the soup a little.
- Stir the kale into the soup and cook for 5 minutes or until it is soft. Add the chicken and heat through. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and half of the lime juice, then serve in shallow bowls with the feta and a few coriander leaves placed on top.
- Serve the leftover lime wedges at the table alongside the toasted tortillas. The longer you keep the chicken in the pan, the thicker the soup will get, so add a touch of extra stock if you can't serve the soup right away.
