My toxic trait is adding to many things to the pot. 😖 And because of this issue I have, our family uses the word 'Shtoup' to describe a lot of the dinners I make; is it a soup, is it a stew? No! It is a Shtoup! For this recipe, I went a little ~Extra~ with the amount of pasta I added, I added a full bag because I love the pasta in soup, it is arguably the best part, but you can add less if you want it more liquid-y, or add more broth, it is totally up to you.
This recipe is so easy to pull together- Enjoy Veggie Friends!
I started with my base of onions, garlic, S&P and some Beyond Meat. (If the fake meat grosses you out, don't use it)
Our base is starting to come together, add in some tomato paste for deep flavour and I used one package of low sodium taco seasoning.
Look at the beautiful, bubbling mess! Just look at it! This is the fun part where we are now going to add in all of our favourite bits!
And after it has been all cooked down, it will look like this! Gorgeous!
🔥Overall Cook Time: 45 Minutes 🍅Prep Time: 10 Minutes
1/2 Large White Onion
1 Tbsp of Olive Oil
Dash of Salt & Pepper
1 Tsp of Garlic
1 Can of Crushed Tomatoes
1 Tbsp Tomato Paste
1 Package of Beyond Meat Ground Beef
1 Package of Taco Seasoning
2 Knorr Vegetable Bouillon Cubes
8 Cups of Water
1 Tsp of Chili Powder
1 Dash of Red Pepper Flakes
2 Chopped Carrots
2 Chopped Celery Stocks
1 Can of Red Kidney Beans
1 Can of Black Beans
1 Package of Cappelletti Pasta
1 Diced Bell Pepper
In a large pot, on medium heat, combine the onions, garlic, olive oil, S&P Let that cook for 5 minutes so the onions get a little translucent.
Once the onions have been cooking for 5 minutes add in your fake ground beef to get that browning, also add in your taco seasoning, chili powder, red pepper flakes, and tomato paste- cook for another 10.
Once that mixture has had time to brown, add in your can of tomatoes, water and your bouillon cubes.
Cook that for another 15 minutes until it is bubbling.
While your soup base is cooking, prep your veggies. I went for a small cube on all of them because I don't like them to take forever to cook.
Once your mixture is hot and bubbly, add in your vegetables, your two types of beans and your pasta! this is a easy one pot dinner so everyone gets in the pool!
Let your mixture cook for about another 15 minutes, or whoever long it takes for you noodles and veggies to get to your desired tenderness!
Season to taste, I am a little wimp with spice but you could add cayenne if you want to!
I served it with some fresh bakery cheesy breadsticks, it is was delicious. Enjoy!
