Warming soup!

Fall is here in NYC which means it's soup weather! I love making soup because it's filling and also is so easy. This soup was inspired by random items that i had in my fridge.

I needed to use up Brussel sprouts so I roasted them up in the oven for 35 minutes at 450. Then I simply sauteed up half an onion in the bottom of a stock pot. Filled the stock pot with veggie broth and tossed in the brussel sprouts and a can of white beans. I added a bit of cumin and black pepper. I let it simmer for a while and let all the flavors chill together.

After about 10 minutes, I used my immersion blender and smooshed (that is the technical term) up the chunks.

I put the soup in a bowl to enjoy and topped it with some shredded cheese. Easy, healthy and delicious!
