A comforting and healthy Tomato & Mixed Bean Soup recipe made using pantry staples. Made with canned tomatoes and beans, this is a frugal meal for when you’re stuck at home and need a delicious dinner!

Things have definitely been tightening up this past week or two due to the international pandemic that is currently effecting the world. People are going into isolation, businesses are closing their doors or cutting back to deliveries only and social distancing is in full swing. And if all that isn’t enough, the panic buying hasn’t eased up at all. Shelves are empty and it’s getting harder and harder for a lot of people to put together a normal meal. 


Using What You Have…

Yep. That means it’s time to reach right into your pantry to hopefully dig out some pantry staple gold. That’s what I did this week and because of that, I created something that I’ll be more than happy to eat again and again. This Tomato & Mixed Bean Soup is a comforting go-to recipe using the basic pantry staples; tinned tomatoes & canned beans. 

a white oval shaped soup bowl filled with a rich red of tomato soup with dark red kidney beans, pale brown lima beans and small orange chickpeas. the soup broth is runny with large rough pieces of chopped cooked brown onions, diced red cooked tomatoes and garnished with fresh green oregano leaves. The tomato and bean soup sits on a white stone bench and is surrounded by a white and light pale grey tea towel.
I guarantee that this soup does not feel like canned food! It’s a great one-pot dinner recipe that’s so simple and quick to make and it really is my kind of comfort food. It also makes for a really good meal prep recipe and can be frozen for another night!
