This soup is delicious and easy. In this recipe I am using canned bean for convenience. If you want to make your own, get a bag of mixed beans and you will be covered. If making your own beans, you don't need to season them while cooking.
1 can cannellini beans
1 can black beans
1 can coconut milk
1 can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup uncooked arboria rice (other types of rice can be use. don't use instant rice so not sure how that would work with this soup)
mixed veggies totaling 2 cups (I used shredded carrots, onions, roasted red peppers, spinach)
1 TBS chopped garlic
3 TBS curry (be brave)
1 tsp cayenne (be cautious)
2 TBS craisins or raisins
salt and pepper to taste (do not add salt when cooking but when finished)
Add all ingredients except the beans and coconut milk to a big pot. Add 2 cups of water and bring to boil. Lower heat and simmer until rice is cooked, about 15 - 20 minutes after boil. This is a thick soup and there shouldn't be too much liquid. If there is, turn your burner up and cook off some of the liquid. Add beans and coconut milk. Eat and enjoy! Your soup should look like the picture.
