POSTED: September 21, 2010 11:30 p.m.

This hearty soup from Ross Dobson’s "Wholesome Kitchen" is easily made vegetarian. Dobson suggests simply replacing the chorizo with 2 cups of sliced mushrooms and cooking as directed. You also can stir in some baby spinach at the end.

Smoky Chorizo and Navy Bean Soup

Start to finish: 20 minutes

Servings: 4

2 tablespoons olive oil

6 ounces chorizo sausage, casing removed, crumbled

In a large saucepan over high, heat the oil. Add the chorizo, onion and garlic and saute for 5 minutes, or until the chorizo has browned and the onion has softened.

Stir in the paprika for 1 minute, or until aromatic.

Add the tomatoes, stock and beans and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook uncovered for 10 minutes. Stir in the parsley and cilantro, then serve with the garlic toasts.
