  • Summary

    This soup uses refried beans as a thickener, so the resulting soup is very thick and rich without having to cook all day. Since I almost always have some leftover smashed pinto beans in my refrigerator, I decided to incorporate them into my version of this delicious soup.

    Ingredients

    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
    • 2 stalks celery, sliced
    • 2 carrots, sliced
    • 6 1/2 cups vegetable broth, divided
    • 1 (14.5-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
    • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
    • 6–8 fingerling potatoes, sliced
    • 1 1/2 cups fat-free refried beans
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 2 tablespoons parsley flakes
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
    • 3/4 cup frozen corn kernels
    • 1/2 cup uncooked whole wheat pasta elbows
    • 2 cups chopped Swiss chard
    • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
