1 (14.5 ounce) can petite diced tomatoes- not drained, OR about 1 cup diced fresh tomato
½ teaspoon salt
2 bay leaves
OPTIONAL: season with cumin or pepper to your liking to give additional flavor. Or add some fresh parsley leaves.
VARIATION: substitute chicken broth for the vegetable broth and add 1 cup diced ham for a non-vegan more hearty soup
Pre-soak dried beans: overnight or for 8 hours in a pot of water covering the beans 2 inches with water. A quicker way to pre-soak your dried beans is to put them into a pot covered with 2 inches of water and bring to a simmer for 2 minutes. Then remove pot from the heat, cover and let steep for 1 hours. Drain beans after soaking.
Prepare vegetables (wash and cut accordingly). Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat until oil shimmers. Sauté carrots, celery, onion and garlic until softened and translucent, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Stir in drained beans, broth, tomatoes, salt and bay leaves. (If adding ham to recipe, stir it in too). Bring to contents to a boil; cover; reduce heat to low, and simmer covered for 2 – 2 ½ hours or until beans and vegetables are tender. Remove bay leaves; serve and enjoy.
NOTE: Refrigerate leftover for 3-4 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Soup tends to thicken some as it cools. Yields about 12 cups. Just as tasty eaten chilled vs warm.
If you need to cook this soup super super fast, cook it in an instant pot it takes only 30 minutes. Pre-soak the beans and prepare the vegetables as described in step one and two. Then add all recipe contents to the instant pot, cover with the lid and seal to lock. Use the manual pressure cook mode and set timer to 20 minutes. After let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes and then change the valve to “venting” to release the rest of the pressure. Once pressure is fully released open the lid; remove bay leaves; serve and enjoy!

Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast that is a popular vegan food product. It has a cheesy, nutty, and savory flavor and is often used to give vegan food a cheesy flavor. Nutritional yeast is said to boost energy, protect against cell damage (aka cancer) and lower cholesterol. It’s typically fortified with Vitamin B12, so it’s a great vegan source of B12.
Some simple ways to incorporate nutritional yeast into your diet include:
Use it as a popcorn topper
Sprinkle it over soup or pasta
Mix it into your homemade hummus
Add it in as you cook up some scrambled eggs
One of the most common things to do with nutritional yeast is to make a cheese sauce. Here is a Vegan Cheesy Pasta Recipe:
DIRECTIONS: 1.) Cook pasta according to package, prepare sauce while the pasta cooks 2.) Heat the oil over low heat then stir in flour to make a paste. 3.) Slowly add in the nut/soy milk and heat, stirring frequently, until semi thickened. 4.) Then stir in the nutritional yeast, mustard, turmeric, garlic and salt. 5.) Heat for a minute or two, then stir in cooked pasta. (Adjust seasonings to taste.) Serve & enjoy!
Here is a great Vegan Butter Recipe:
⅓ cup room temperature refined coconut oil
1½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp aquafaba (**liquid from a can of garbanzo beans)

While blending, slowly drizzle in the coconut oil and then olive oil. Continue blending until it thickens to a mayonnaise consistency. 3.) Add in nutritional yeast, turmeric, and salt until combined and smooth. 4.) Store in an air-tight container in the fridge overnight to firm. 5.)
