Smoked Paprika Soup

This is an adaption of Cesnecka garlic soup.

Peel potatoes (or clean thoroughly) and dice. Fry in a pot with oil until the sticky bits start to be a deep golden colour. Add finely diced/grated garlic and fry for just half of a minute or so.

Add stock/water, bay leaf, about 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika, marjoram, cumin, and beans (and chilli flakes, if using).

Let simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes depending on size of dice.

Before serving, add another teaspoon of smoked paprika powder and any other herbs or spices you want. Goes well with fresh or toasted bread.
