Lately, I have been incorporating adzuki beans into my diet. I always wanted to make soup with adzuki beans and canned tomatoes, but never got the chance until recently.
I decided to combine some leftover adzuki beans with canned tomatoes, vegetable stock, carrots, celery, and corn. Then I allowed the mixture to simmer for about 40 minutes.
You could use canned aduki beans or cook the dry beans. You could add any vegetables you would like, including green, leafy vegetables such as kale or chard.
The soup a delicious and easy vegan meal that is great for lunch. It only takes about an hour to make, so you should have no problem with this recipe.
