We’re finally having some cooler weather here in Northern California which means I’m jumping at the chance to make some hearty soups.  This brings me to my new blog series: 5 Delightful Soups In Under 30, bringing you a new vegan soup recipe once a week for the next 5 weeks.  If you’ve followed Veggie Kids for any length of time then you’ll know that I am a lazy cook, meaning I don’t like to cook/bake/make anything that takes more than 45 minutes.  Many of the vegan dinner in my eCookBook “The 30 Day Vegan” are ready in 30 minutes or less.  That’s how I roll!

The first vegan soup recipe featured in the 5 Delightful Soups in Under 30 series is this flavorful White Bean Soup.  Not only is it loaded with protein and healthy ingredients, it’s so satisfying!

White Bean Basil Soup
Serves: 6 servings
 
Ingredients
  • 2 tsp. coconut oil
  • ½ medium yellow or white onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Roma tomato, diced
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2½ C. white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 C. vegetable broth
  • 1 handful fresh basil
  • ½ lemon, juiced + zest (if organic)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Optional: croutons (recipe link below)
Instructions
  1. In a large saucepan, heat coconut oil over medium heat. Saute onions 4-5 minutes, then add garlic and cook for 2 minutes, stirring.
  2. Next, stir in tomatoes, oregano, beans and vegetable broth. Stir and cook for 3-4 minutes, then bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Add basil, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Garnish with croutons and fresh basil.
