Mexican Vegetable Soup

Soups are always my go-to during winter time when I feel lazy, but still want to have a healthy meal. That why I used canned tomatoes, beans, and corn in this recipe. Of course, you can use fresh ingredients, but it will definitely take more time to prep and cook.

I don’t like my food to be too spicy, but if you do, add some chili powder with the paprika. Cooking spices for a minute before pouring the vegetable broth into the pot will enhance their flavors.

Nutritional yeast brings a bit of a cheesy taste to the soup, it’s not essential, but it makes it more hearty.

You can substitute oregano or thyme for fresh coriander if you don’t like its distinct flavor.

I recommend tasting your soup before seasoning, since the nutritional yeast and vegetable broth you are using might make the soup salty enough.

Store this Mexican vegetable soup in the fridge for a few days, or in the freezer for up to three months.
