Bean Soup

This soup is a hot and hearty meal made from mashed beans. Thickening soup with this protein is a cheap and tasty way to add fiber, folate and protein to your meal.

2 15.4 oz cans organic refried beans
1 14.4 oz can organic fire-roasted diced tomatoes
2 cups chicken stock
1 tsp cumin
1/2 cup sliced scallions or chopped parsley
1/2 cup Greek yogurt

Combine the refried beans, tomatoes, chicken stock and cumin in a medium-large pot and simmer, stirring occasionally. If you like a creamy consistency, purée all ingredients either in a blender in batches or with an immersion blender until smooth. Serve topped with yogurt and scallions or parsley.
