Pinto Beans and Diced Tomato Soup

Beans are a great source of fibers and protein. Too often we cook with meat because we "have to have" protein and/pr the men will not want to eat the dish unless there is meat. Well, I cannot address the factor that men will not want to eat it as that will be a matter of you convincing them that the dish is just as good and filling without the meat.

The following recipe is quick, easy and very taste lean soup. It only requires a few ingredients and nothing that is a specialty.

3 cans of pinto beans (drained)
2 cups of low sodium chicken broth
1 cup of water
1 tsp. cumin
3 cloves of garlic
1 can of fire roasted diced tomatoes
2 cups of cooked whole wheat noodles

  1. Combine beans, chicken brother, water, cumin, diced tomatoes and garlic in a dutch oven. Let simmer for about 15 minutes.
  2. While simmering, cook the pasta as directed by the package.
  3. Drain pasta and combine with the rest of the ingredients in the dutch oven.
  4. Simmer another 5 minutes.
