Meatless Monday

A personal tradition I’ve instituted in Meatless Monday, at least as far as cooking dinner goes! Tonight I made a recipe adapted from the book YOU: The Owners Manual

Portuguese Bean Soup, adapted


Begin with onions in a little bit of oil.


Add chicken broth, sweet potatoes, chili-garlic paste.


Add diced tomatoes. cannelini beans, collard greens.


Serve with a splash of balsamic vinegar.

My version, I made 4 servings, each with 190 calories, less than 1 gram of fat, 12 grams of protein, and 9 grams of fiber. The vinegar really helped to make the soup better. There is something bout canned tomatoes and sweet potatoes together that I am not 100% sure that I liked. This soup might be better with regular potatoes. But still it was pretty tasty, I’d give it 3.5 stars out of 5.
