In my previous post of Midnight Shift Madness (Vegan), I mentioned a Bean Soup Recipe that I love to make for my many lunches 🙂 Here is the recipe! It is simple and will save you money, feel free to substitute the noodles or frozen veggies for whatever you may have in the house. I like to consider this the “dumping ground” for left over veggies and pastas 🙂 Give it a try and let me know what you think! You’ll need these following ingredients:
-3 cans of Organic Kroger Spicy Black Beans ($1 a piece)
-2 c. Organic Vegetable Stock/Broth
-1/4c. Chopped Sweet Onion
-1 c. Organic Frozen Corn
-1 c. Organic Frozen Peas
-2 c. Organic Noodles of your choosing (I prefer Trader Joes Brown Rice/Quinoa Pasta)
-1 Tsp. Cumin
-1 Tsp. Chili Powder
-1 Tsp. Paprika
-½ Tsp. Salt
Take your largest pot and throw in your ¼ c. Onion in with ½ Tbsp. EVOO on Medium Heat 🙂 Sauté until golden brown.
Next add in the rest of your ingredients (dump the whole can of beans, liquid included) and stir 🙂 Place a lid on top and allow to cook over medium heat for 15 minutes 🙂 Make sure to stir in between so nothing sticks to the bottom!
After it has cooked, allow it to cool before placing it in your jars 🙂 You can refrigerate this for 4-5 days and enjoy a cheap/easy meal prepped lunch!
You can also add in Fritos or Corn Chips (These are both Vegan) for some extra crunch and flavor!
Enjoy and let me know what you think!
