Beans Soup

I have to admit that I am a meat lover. I am not so much into vegetarian food and most of the times I feel like the dish is not complete without a nice piece of meat in it. But! I make exceptions... like this delicious one - Beans Soup. It seems like the beans have all that necessary rich flavor, all by themselves, so they go great even without meat. This soup is light, dietetic and healthy, but also very tasty, which for me is the winning combination!:)

You will need the following ingredients:
- 300 g of beans
- one onion
- one carrot
- one pepper
- a hand full of cherry tomatoes or a big tomato
- a small celery
- some dill, chopped
- salt and pepper

I started by boiling the beans. When nice and soft, I put some oil in a frying pan, then added the chopped onion and stir it until golden.

Then I've added all the other vegetables, chopped, and stirred for about 10 minutes.

All this mixture went in the pot where the beans were boiling. I've adjusted the water quantity in order to have a rich soup. Then I've seasoned it with salt and pepper and I've let it boil for another 20 minutes, until all the vegetables were soft.

In the end I've sprinkled a some chopped dill.

So simple, so delicious and, unlike other vegan dishes, so full and satisfying!
