It's gone cold again outside so time for a good old Brown bean and tomato soup.

Fry up a couple of bags of soup greens-mix (leeks, carrots, onions) in a bit'o'butter in the hugest pan you've got.
Add four tablespoons of flour and stir-fry together.

Add 1.5lt boiling stock, gradually at first, stirring into the greens mix until you've got a thickened broth that looks something akin to ditchwater.

In the meantime get a 13 year-old boy to turn 1/2kg of mince, parsley, 2 eggs, breadcrumbs and S&P; into loads and loads of little meatballs.

Add four 1/2lt packs of sieved tomatoes to the ditchwater and bring to the boil. (at this stage I snuck a fat drop of tobasco sauce into the mix, but don't tell Annie)

Add the small but perfectly formed meatballs, delicately done by son #2, and cook for 10 mins or so.

Add two big jars of brown beans, once they've been rinsed of that horrible juice they come in. Don't stir too much now or the beans will all fall into mush, and we don't want that now do we? Just warm them through.

Serve with big chunks of crusty home made bread.

Make sure there's plenty of room in the freezer coz there'll be loads left.

"Eet smakelijk!"

so why not boil your own beans? No sticky gunk and they don't fall apart either?
