The weather in Spain is so warm, especially here in the south. It's sunny most of the year, but as I'm not used to the cold weather, I don't like it and I'm making hot beverages, soups and stews all the time and also thinking of summer.
This simple vegan bean soup is a super quick recipe, that's why I love it so much (well, I also love it because it tastes like heaven!). You just need to cook the veggies until golden brown, add the rest of the ingredients, cook for about 10 minutes and your delicious, healthy, comforting soup is ready to serve.
I cook every single day because I want to eat healthy and homemade food is the best choice, besides, I'm a food blogger, so this is my job, but after all those years cooking I'm still surprised for all the delicious, quick and easy recipes that can be made just using healthy ingredients. In addition, I'm saving so much money cooking at home, it's a win win!
