  • Summary

    When you add greens to hot soup, they instantly wilt and practically disappear. So though I started with 4 cups of lettuce, each time I served this soup I wound up adding more lettuce or spinach to each bowl. Feel free to add as much as you like. Call the kids over so that they can watch as the soup absorbs ridiculous amounts of greenery.

    Ingredients

    • 1 large onion chopped
    • 1 jalapeno chile stemmed, chopped , seeded and finely diced (add more or less to taste)
    • 1 yellow or red bell pepper chopped
    • 2 medium carrots diced
    • 3 cloves garlic minced
    • 1 small red cabbage or 1/2 large cabbage, chopped
    • 6 ounces mushrooms quartered
    • 2 cans cooked black beans or 3 cups, rinsed and drained
    • 1 tablespoon Mexican oregano or regular oregano
    • 1 teaspoon cumin
    • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder or for smokiness without heat use smoked paprika
    • 1 tablespoon regular chili powder
    • generous grating of black pepper
    • 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
    • 5 cups vegetable broth (or water plus 2 servings bouillon)
    • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
    • 4 cups chopped lettuce or spinach
    • salt to taste optional
