Everything but the Kitchen Sink Soup (vegan)

I’m feeling a cold coming on. No surprise considering the hours I’ve worked this month thanks to Q-end.  Friday evening,  I stopped at Whole Paycheck [Foods] and literally walked down the produce aisle, placing a sundry of veggies in my cart. Then I picked up a package of vegan “fake” chorizo, moseyed on over to dry good section for some Garbanzo beans and a can of plum tomatoes. Today I threw everything into a pot and Voila! [No Oil] Everything but the Kitchen Sink Soup (I didn’t know what else to call it).      :-/

  • Mirepoix (Celery/Carrots/Yellow Onion)
  • Daikon Radish
  • Vegan Chorizo
  • Baby Bella Mushrooms ~ sliced
  • 1 Can Garbanzo Beans ~ rinsed
  • 1 large Can of Plum Whole Tomatoes
  • Kale
  • Water ~ 32 oz +/1

Method of Prep:

  • Water Saute Mirepoix (rough chopped)
  • Add rough chopped Daikon (gently peeled)
  • Add sliced Vegan Chorizo
  • Add sliced Baby Bella Mushrooms
  • Add rinsed Garbanzo Beans
  • Add plum tomatoes (crush the tomatoes with your hands as you add them to the pot)
  • Fill tomato can with water, add to pot
  • Add additional water (amounts vary)
  • Allow to simmer until vegetables are al dente (or to your preference)

Turn off heat and add the chopped Kale.


P.s. I did not use any oil1, salt or spices in this dish as I felt the vegan chorizo contained enough sodium and spices which added a nice flavor.   However, season as you see fit, if you’re so inclined to make this.  


1  The reason I did not saute the mirepoix in oil is because thanks to Somer @ VedgedOut; Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s book: Eat to Live as well as Dr. Neal Barnard’s  book: Reversing Diabetes (I am not a diabetic, btw) I have given up oil and all fats in my diet.  I have been a no-oil vegan for 1 month and 27 days and I have to say,  I feel fantastic; my digestion has improved and better yet, I have lost 6 freakin’ lbs without even trying!    🙂
