- Mist a large pan with cooking spray and set over a medium heat. Add the onion and celery and cook for 8-10 minutes until soft. Add the garlic, bay leaves and paprika, and cook for another minute, then stir in the tomatoes and stock. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the beans, stir to combine, and simmer for another 5 minutes.
- Remove the bay leaves, then use a stick blender to blitz the soup until it’s mostly smooth, but with some of the beans left whole.
- Season to taste, then stir in the cabbage and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until the cabbage is tender.
- Ladle the soup into bowls and serve garnished with a swirl of the yogurt and the extra paprika.
