Beans and Rice Soup

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Le Cuisinier Exquis

This recipe was inspired by my pre-vegetarian days of corned beef soup. I had a sudden craving for my childhood favorite when I had an epiphany. I realized that refried beans would have a similar mushy texture and color of the canned corned beef in soup. Then I thought of beans and rice (I don't know why). Here's the result

This was a great launching pad! My modifications: Added a green onion, about a cup of sliced cherry tomatoes, a tbsp of fresh lime juice and a couple of chopped fresh sage leaves. Also omitted the water and used 4 cups of veggie broth instead. Served it as a meal topped with vegan sour cream. Outstanding result - thanks for sharing.
