Black Bean & Sweet Potato Soup

Black Bean & Sweet Potato Soup

Although I love eating meat and fish, I have to admit that 80% of my diet is actually vegetarian – I love everything from vegetarian sausages and meat free mince to cottage cheese and eggs. This recipe though is both vegetarian AND vegan, and is packed with plant based protein – almost 10g per serving! As a side note, when I buy shop bought soups I always make sure that there is at least 9-10g of protein per 1/2 a pot (for the fullness factor & muscle repairing goodness!).


SO, if you have a soup maker then this recipe will take you about 5 minutes to prepare and if you don’t then it will take around 10 minutes – no more excuses for a healthy, tasty and protein pack lunch at home or at work!


Thank you to Protein Dynamix (use NIC20 for 20% off!) for challenging me to make a non-meat, high protein packed soup recipe!!




*You can stir the rest of the black beans in at the end or add them to salads or a vegetable stir-fry!

**Enough to cover the vegetables in your soup maker/pan.

    Loved this soup! So simple to make, really filling and it’s a good way to introduce black beans. I’d never tried them before and found this soup on my Instagram just at the right time! Thanks for the recipe 🙂
