I love creamy, thick soups. They are so satisfying and filling, and the velvety texture just makes me want to eat more of it. With this soup, the “creaminess” comes from beans, so I have no guilt eating as much as I’d like--the more I eat, the longer I stay full!
If you don’t blend this soup it has a completely different, chunky outcome, so it’s really like 2 soup recipes in one! Make a big batch and eat the chunky version one night, then blend it up the next day for a totally new experience! It’s great in a thermos at work, or you can heat it up at your desk using the VitaClay personal slow cooker and yogurt maker.
The more you puree this soup the better the texture becomes. Round out this easy meatless soup with a green salad, or even add a few bacon bits to boost the satiety levels and add a salty crunch.
