Mushroom PozoleBy María HummelThe pozole is a tasty traditional Mexican dish that is usually prepared with pork, and that is very easy to prepare. This vegetarian version is much lighter since it is much lower in fat, especially saturated fats. The vegetables that are added at the time of serving make this recipe provide a good amount of fiber and nutrients for the body.Vegetarian AjiacoBy María HummelThis delicious Colombian dish is usually prepared with chicken, but in this vegetarian version chickpeas or peas are used to add vegetable protein and substitute meat. In this way we obtain a very tasty yet nutritious and healthy dish.Cream of Tomato SoupBy Life and Health NetworkIf you’re wondering if it’s possible to make a steaming bowl of blissfully creamy tomato soup without dairy, this recipe is your answer.Feijoada (Brazilian Black Bean Stew)By Life and Health NetworkFeijoada is a classic Brazilian dish, an all-day sort of dish that comes from the same family as French cassoulets and American baked beans. While there are as many versions as there are cooks in Brazil, the basic elements of the dish are always the same: black beans and an assortment of vegetables. Traditionally, a hodgepodge of cured meats are thrown into the mix but our version ups the veg-content instead. A surprising aspect of feijoada is the orange. The habit of serving sliced oranges with feijoada may seem unusual if you’ve never tried it, but the juicy tang of the citrus provides a refreshing contrast to the richness of the dish. It’s what really sets this recipe apart from a run-of-the-mill bean soup.Italian White Bean SoupBy Life and Health NetworkWhen I first tasted this soup, I was speechless.

They have a unique flavor and it is said that they will not give the consumer the usual digestive reactions that other beans can give. They are yellow and the size of a pinto bean.Kale and White Bean SoupBy Life and Health NetworkThis is an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink soup, but we figured that might not make the most positive first impression.

The addition of black beans, if you have a can in your pantry, would only serve to balance it further, no?Thai Curry SoupBy Life and Health NetworkThe international food aisle can be overwhelming, no?
