I have been making healthy changes to eat better for the past 6 months or so. The nice thing is that I don’t have to make drastic changes now that the new year is here! I’m trying to continue to eat better and make more changes this year.
One change I’d like to try is “Meatless Monday” or having at least one day a week where I don’t eat meat. This week, I decided to try creating a soup that is still filling and nutritious, but doesn’t include meat. I did use chicken broth, so if you want to make this meal vegetarian, use vegetable broth instead!
Of course, this recipe would be delicious with shredded chicken. If you like, feel free to add some!
I used Green Giant Steam Crisp Southwestern Style Corn for this soup. I love how easy it is to add to the soup! It saves you money since it contains a blend of veggies and black beans, so you don’t have to add as many other ingredients to your recipe.
I pack my lunch for work each day, so I love making healthy recipes that can be reheated for lunch each day. This soup was perfect! It reheated well and was a great lunch for the next few days.
- 8 cups chicken broth
- 2 (15 oz) cans black beans
- 2 (11 oz) cans Green Giant Southwestern Style corn
- 1/2 cup salsa
- 1 cup quinoa
- In a large pot, stir together the chicken broth, black beans, corn and salsa. Bring to a boil.
- Add in the quinoa and lower the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for 15 minutes.
