Soy Chorizo Kale Soup
By now, if you follow, you must know that Sunday is Soup Day!
My first thought as I headed to the refridge to see what would inspire me was another take on my kale white-bean soup, since the kale I bought yesterday looked a bit wilted to begin with. Looking in the cupboard, I realized there were only two choices for beans – garbanzos or pintos. The pintos struck a cord.
I have a great tortilla soup recipe that I love the flavors in (by good ole Richard Simmons), so the fun began! I heated about a quart of filtered water and tossed in a couple packs Goya fake ham seasoning. (*warning-it does have msg – sorry guys – but you could easily use no-chicken broth cubes and liquid smoke).
2 cloves garlic
½ a large onion
10 baby carrots
½ a red and ½ a green pepper
While that is boiling, wash, de-stem and chop a bunch of kale – then add to the pot.
1 can no salt tomatoes
1 can pinto beans
1 can green chilies diced (I had jalapenos, so used about 1/3 can)
It started looking too thick, so I poured another cup or so of veg. both from a box in.
Add: ½ tsp. cumin – more or less 😉

Hmmm…that soy chorizo I just bought might be good in this—I added half a pack.
½ cup + lime juice (or add per bowl)
Sprinkle Nutrional Yeast on top of each bowl or add ½ cup + to the pot.
No tortillas for me today, and I had just used up the cilantro or I would have added a ½ c. or so. Just spicy enough to make my nose run, I didn’t have to add hot sauce today.
Umm… Ummm… good!
See ya next week!
