veggi bean soup


– Prepare all your veggies (washed, chopped, etc.) then heat a large soup pot on the stove over high heat. Once the pot is hot add the veggies (carrots, celery, onion, mushrooms, and bell pepper) and dry saute for about 5 minutes stirring constantly.

– Add in your spices and the two cans of tomatoes.

– After that open you beans and give them a good rinse, then throw them in the pot as well. Take an empty tomato can and fill it with water and throw that in the pot as well.

– Bring to a boil and then cover the pot and reduce heat to low for 45 minutes. Stir occasionally. During the last 10 minutes add in the kale.

– Remove from heat and let it cool for a bit. Unless you are impatient like me and would rather burn your mouth…Serve with warm bread, taco shells, or a crunchy tortilla or what ever else you would like! Enjoy!
