And this great soup is full of the wonderful nutrition of rutabagas that will do the body good. Plus this soup takes no time at all to prepare and it’s a full spectrum vegan meal with all the proteins and carbs a person needs.
4 – Cups of Organic Rutabaga – Chopped
2 1/2 – Cups of Cooked Organic Pink Beans
1 – Cup of Cooked Organic Brown Rice
3 – Cups of Organic Kale – Chopped
1 – Large Organic Yellow Onion – Chopped
2 – Cups of Organic Cilantro – Chopped
6 – Cloves of Organic Garlic – Minced
3 – Teaspoons of Organic Ground Annatto Seeds – Give this soup that nice yellow color.
3 – Tablespoons of Organic Low Sodium Adobo Seasoning – this seasoning is popular in the Caribbean and now also in the states.
Enough Spray Organic Olive Oil for the Bottom of the Pot
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Enough Filtered Water to Cover Everything
(Optional) – Add some hot pepper sauce for spice.
Take the onion and garlic and sauté them in a large pot sprayed with a little bit of organic olive oil. Next add all the rest of the ingredients (except the kale) add water and cook until everything is tender. Then allow the soup to cool slightly, and then add the chopped kale so it does not overcook and lose all the great live enzymes. Salt and pepper to taste and there you have it a great tasting meal.
If one is using an electronic pressure cooker this whole meal from dried beans and brown rice can be cooked all together and save even more time and nutrients… then let cool and add the kale.
