  • 1 ½ cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 cup zucchini, chopped
  • 1 14 oz. can red kidney beans
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Fill a large pot with 6 cups water, add tomatoes, onion, celery, carrots, green pepper, red pepper and garlic and bring to boil. Continue to boil until veggies are soft, about 8 minutes. Then add broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, kidney beans, paprika, oregano and a few grinds of fresh black pepper and continue to boil for another 5-10 minutes. Reduce to simmer and add a pinch of salt to taste. Ladle soup into bowls and serve with a few slices of sprouted grain bread on the side. This is another great soup to eat throughout the week or freeze for future meals!
