Clean Eating Taco Soup – A healthy, hearty meal that is sure to please the whole family!

We had a taste of spring around here for about a week! The weather was so nice we started longing to play in the dirt. Today the forecast says snow! It’s dark and cold again. Cold days call for soup! Not just any soup though, Clean Eating Taco Soup! This recipe is in our free ebook Clean Eating for Beginners and we thought it would be fun to share with you today.

We have been making Taco Soup for years now and it is a favorite with the whole family! Since we discovered Pressure Cookers it has become even quicker and easier to make. Don’t let the long list of ingredients intimidate you. If you use a Vegetable Chopper it comes together in no time at all.

What makes this recipe wonderful for clean eating (aside from all the organic ingredients) are the greens we have added. If you chop them very small you don’t even know they are there!

Baking soda may seem like a weird ingredient however it helps neutralize the acid in the tomatoes and blends the flavors beautifully.

Taco Soup

1 large onion
4 cloves garlic
¼ cup ghee or butter
2 bell peppers
2 jalapeño peppers
8 – 10 mushrooms
3 cups greens (chard, kale, etc.)
6 cups pinto beans, soaked
3 quarts tomatoes
1 Tbs. Real Salt
1 Tbs. minced onion
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. onion powder
½ tsp. black pepper
¼ tsp. cayenne
¼ tsp. garlic powder
2 cups cooked quinoa
2 cups corn, fresh or frozen
¾ tsp. baking soda

Toppings:

chopped onions
chopped tomatoes
sour cream
grated cheese
sliced olives
sliced avocado
corn chips, crushed

Sauté onion and garlic in ghee or butter until golden brown (if you have an Instant Pot Pressure Cooker use the sauté feature so you don’t have to dirty any extra dishes. We love this feature!). Add all peppers, mushrooms and greens. Sauté until the greens turn a vibrant color. This will only take a few minutes. Add all remaining ingredients except quinoa, corn and baking soda. Cook at high pressure for about 55 minutes or according to you cookers directions. After cooking time is complete stir in quinoa, corn and baking soda. Enjoy with desired toppings!
