EASY soup*

I have been getting emails asking for recipes so instead of posting my weekly menu, today I'm going to post what is perhaps the easiest soup recipe I have ever made. I got the recipe from http://www.vegetariantimes.com/ but made a few changes. If you can use a can opener then you can make this soup. There is no chopping, measuring or pureeing involved. You don't even add spices. Each serving packs a whopping 19 grams of protein. It makes a huge batch so it's perfect for this time of year. You can bring it to a potluck or share it with a neighbor. It's a spicy soup so if you need to mellow it out, just add a dollop of sour cream or cut back the enchilada sauce and use a little vegetable broth instead. But I think it is perfect just the way it is. I serve it with slices of fresh avocado on top and crusty french bread.

  2. This sounds so good, and easy Janet! Thanks for sharing. Question, why do you spray the soup pot with non-stick spray? Wouldn't the tomato juice keep the beans from sticking? Or maybe it depends on the type of soup pot?
    Just came across a chipotle sweet potato soup... now doesn't that sound good!! I love soups!

  3. Joan,

    I think the idea behind the non-stick spray is for easier clean-up. I doubt it matters to the recipe at all. And please share your sweet potato soup recipe.

  10. Hi Janet,
    I've made (and enjoyed)that soup many times, without the pumpkin. Next time I make it, I'll try adding that. For us, it was the un-official beginning of fall this weekend, because I made the first big pot of veggie chili. Otherwise, spent the day much like you did!
