Once hot, add onion, carrot, celery, garlic, 1 tsp salt, several turns of black pepper, and spices. Cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring frequently until vegetables are soft and fragrant. Stir in tomato paste and tahini. Cook for 1 minute.

    Thank you soooooo much as I am THANKFUL to add this quick soup recipe to my FAVS collection.

    I used a couple of Roma tomatoes as I didn’t have tomato paste.
    I used spinach instead of kale.
    No cilantro so left out.

    I only used one can of beans.

    The spice mixture was amazing.

    Mmmmmmm so good.
