Carrot and Ginger Soup with Butter Beans
I made this soup for lunch. We have been away for 6 days so this was really a case of: What is going off in the fridge? How can I get more vegetables into the kids? How can I stop being so boring in the kitchen? Can I make something different? I found a bag...

Slow-Cooker Chick Peas with Tomato and Chorizo
