Last week I felt like a warming soup – but at the same time was craving pasta (as usual!) – which brought to this creation! This soup was so comforting and packed full of flavour. I usually make my own Mexican spice however saw this new seasoning in the shops by @mingle and because it was not packed full of fillers I brought it. I must say it does have a really nice kick to it – so if you are not a fan of spicy dishes maybe cut back on the Mexican seasoning a little.
For this recipe I have also included the delicious creamy cheesy sauce that is a must!
- 1 finely diced onion
- 1 finely chopped capsicum
- 1 tablespoon of Spicy Mexican Seasoning
- 4 cups filtered water
- 1 jar passata (690g)
- 1/2 cup risoni pasta
- 200g peeled diced sweet potato (mine were around 1-2cm)
- 1 can black beans – rinsed
- 1 tablespoon rapadura sugar
- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
- 4 tablespoons oat cream – optional
- 1/2 tablespoon Spicy Mexican Seasoning – optional
Firstly in a large stock pot sauté the onion capsicum & Mexican seasoning in some EVO or water. Once the onions are soft add in the water, passata, risoni pasta and sweet potato with a pinch of salt. Cover and gently bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for around 15-20 minutes. Make sure you stir the soup every 5 minutes or so.
Add in the sugar, black beans and nutritional yeast stir through and taste. Now because this was for the kids too, I added in a little cream. For me, I would prefer it a little spicer – so just taste your soup and decide weather you want it creamer or spicy or a combo of both!
Now for the Creamy Dressing…..YUM!!
Place in a blender
- 1/3 cup fresh coriander leaves
- 1/3 cup cashew butter
- 1/3 + 2 tablespoons oat mylk
- 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon cumin powder
- 1 teaspoon chipotle sauce – optional
Blend until all ingredients are well combined like a sauce. You may need to add a little warm water if you want it a little more saucy.
Now you’re ready to serve up and enjoy this delicious & satisfying soup. You may like to serve it with some corn removed from the cob or some sour dough bread and avocado. However you decide you will definitely add this to your soup collection!
And remember that you can add in those creamier ingredients to make it child/spice friendly! Please share with me your amazing creations on Instagram
