Weather here has been summer one day and winter the next. One day, when it was winter, I made this soup.
It would be vegan, if I hadn’t put cheese on top.
Here’s what it is:
MA’s Chili Mac Soup-ish Thing
- olive oil
- chili powder
- diced onion, if your husband can eat onions
- cooked macaroni noodles
- black beans
- diced tomatoes
- vegetarian bouillon cubes
- tomato paste
- onion powder, if you don’t use diced onion
- chipotle pepper to taste
While the noodles are cooking, heat the olive oil in a pot and cook the spices (and onion, if you can use onion) until fragrant. Add everything, including the cooked noodles, and heat through. If one of you (<cough>Charlie<cough>) doesn’t like spicy food, add the chipotle pepper at the table to the dish of the one that wants it. Top with shredded cheese, vegan or otherwise.
Purty durn good.
