1 cup Spring Onions, finely chopped

1 cup Black or Red Beans, cooked

3 cups Vegetable Broth

1 cup Tomatoes, chopped

2 tbsp ground Cumin

Salt & Pepper, to taste

1 tbsp fresh Lime juice

4 tbsp Avocado, finely chopped

Method:

  1. Heat a large non-stick pan and add the oil.
  2. Sauté the onions and garlic in the oil for about 2 minutes, until they turn pink.
  3. Then add the chopped tomatoes and stir well. Allow to cook for 3-5 minutes until the tomatoes soften and release all juices.
  4. Add all the veggies – zucchini, bell peppers and corn. Reserve 4 tablespoons of the chopped spring onions for garnish and add the rest to the pan. Sauté together for 5 to 10 mins.
  5. Pour the vegetable stock into the pan, add the cumin powder, stir well, and season with salt and pepper. Now allow the soup to simmer on low heat for about 20 to 25 minutes.
  6. Once all the vegetables are cooked and the soup has simmered, pour in the cooked beans and give it a good stir. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  7. Ladle the hot soup into bowls. Flavour with some fresh lime juice. Top with chopped avocados, spring onions and generously add some tortilla sticks to every bowl. Serve immediately.

Our Tip: Stir in 2 tablespoons of chia seeds into the soup while simmering. This packs more nutrition into the hearty soup and also thickens the soup, making it more satiating and satisfying as a complete meal in itself.
