Method

STEP 1

Heat half the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add vegetables from the soup kit to the pan and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until the vegetables soften. Add the stock, stock powder from the soup kit, tomato, chickpeas and 2 cups (500ml) water. Season. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and cook for 10 mins or until the vegetables are tender.

STEP 2

Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the sausages, turning occasionally, for 8 mins or until cooked through. Transfer to a chopping board. Thickly slice.

STEP 3

Add the sausage to the chickpea mixture with the spinach and shredded basil. Cook for 3 mins or until the sausage is heated through and the spinach wilts.

STEP 4

Ladle the soup among serving bowls. Sprinkle with basil leaves and parmesan. Serve with the garlic bread.
