I put this together tonight when there was nothing appetizing to eat at home, and I didn't feel up to any sort of elaborate cooking. This makes a fantastic, light, summer meal on its own, or can be served with warm garlic bread. Adjust the spices to suit your taste.

  5. Enjoy!

Delicious. Both my husband and my two year old enjoyed this (I'll need to at least triple the recipe next time). I used medium salsa, and cayenne pepper instead of paprika (which I think made the dish hotter than originally intended).

I absolutely love this recipe! I'm not crazy about sprouts so I don't use as much. I also loved the extra juices so I kept it to more of a soup consistancy. Delicious, satisfying and healthy!!

Nom nom nom I am eating this now. I stuck to the recipe, except I used slightly more generous quantities (small cans of everything so e.g. about 150g of corn). The paprika and cumin work sooo well together and serving it with garlic bread was a very good call. I think mine needs a bit of extra spice (I did increase the spices but I guess not enough) but other than that this was a pleasing light dinner, although normally I'd go for something more filling.
