A couple of times a month my daughter, and I go to Panera Bread and pick up a couple of bowls of black bean soup. It's savory, well seasoned, and vegan, of course. Last week we stopped by there, and I was told that the black bean soup was no longer on the menu. The lady at the drive through recommended several other soups. When I asked if any of them were vegan she replied, "No."
My daughter was disappointed, so I told her that it meant we got to create our own recipe instead. She was very pleased with that idea. When creating my recipe, I decided to add kale to the mix. I figured, if it was amazing in my vegan chili, then it would be the perfect addition to my black bean soup!
This is a quick and simple recipe that is big on flavor and nutrition. It's always sad when non-vegan restaurants start removing items from their already limited vegan choices.
I am very pleased with how my recipe turned out. We paired it with some vegan grilled "cheese" sandwiches, and the meal was complete. Both my husband and daughter were very pleased at the results.
Spicy, savory, comforting, protein-powered, and only ten ingredients!
