Tortilla soup with beans is on the menu today. It has been a while since I shared a soup recipe and that is why I’m sharing a bean soup. This soup recipe is savory, a little spicy, hearty and vegan. Are you ready to see how you can maken this tortilla soup? Lets get started!
A lot of vegan recipes contain beans not without reason. Beans contain a lot of protein (24 grams per 100 grams), are low in fat (0,8 grams per 100 grams) and high in fiber. They taste great and as such a great replacement for meat.
What I like most about this recipe is that you get a thick and filling soup that you can eat for lunch or even for dinner. Just add a little more vegetables, bake some bread that you can eat on the side and you are done.
Making soup yourself can be very easy. When I was young we would eat soup on the weekend and a pan of soup would be on the stove all day long to infuse the soup with lots of flavors.
Well those days are gone now you can make a soup in half an hour or less. The longer you leave it on though the better the taste becomes. Make it today and eat it tomorrow even better.

How to make tortilla soup
Start by finely chopping the onion, garlic and yellow and red peppers. Heat a skillet to medium hot and add olive oil.
Sauté the yellow, red peppers and onion first until until soft and translucent. Then add the garlic and stir thoroughly.
Now it is time to add the tapenade, the kidney beans and lentils before adding the crushed tomatoes. The lentils give the soup a great structure.
Combine all the ingredients and add the spices at once. Finally add the vegetable broth. Let the soup simmer between 20 to 30 minutes.
Just before taking the pan of the stove add the corn and stir it in the soup. Decorate with some crunched tortilla chips and this yummy bean soup is ready to serve.
Soup side dishes
This soup is great on its own but you can make it even better if you add oen of these side dishes or ingredients:
- Homemade tortilla chips – instead of buying tortilla chips you can make these nacho chips yourself
- No knead Mediterranean bread – this bread with olives and sun dried tomatoes tastes great with any soup recipe
- Tapenade tortilla bread – This is one of my favorite breads. It contains cheese but you can easily omit it
