Recipe Time: Spicy Southwestern Black Bean Vegetarian Chili

27 Sep
Awesome roasted pepper tomato soup!

There Are Many Varieties Of Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Soup.

This is a recipe I just came across but I have no idea where. It looks and sounds so good I just had to share it. In under 30 minutes this high protein, high fiber vegetarian meal will be ready to warm you up on a cold night. The ingredients are super easy to find (mostly things you will have in your pantry) and the prep work is simple. As everyone knows prep work that takes a massive amount of time usually kills the whole ‘urge’ to cook something delicious. At least I know it does for me 😉 Just like the recipe I gave you for the Toasted Corn and Black Bean Tacos, this recipe will also give you the meat flavor minus the meat. I know there are many different companies that make Roasted Red Pepper Tomato soup, some will be vegan and if that is the case then this is a totally vegan meal.

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 large chopped onion (1.5 cups)
