I made this soup for dinner:

It was really good for my headcold, and very filling!

Quick recipe:

~olive oil heated in a pan
~cut up onions, garlic, carrot; cook until soft
~add in spices that you like, I used cumin, pepper, salt, paprika, Italian seasonings
~let the spices toast for a moment or two
~add in soup stock, I used chicken, but any would be fine, about 4 cups worth
~add in some chopped up roma tomatoes
~add in chopped up zucchini
~add in beans of your choice, I used white kidney beans
~let simmer for some time to allow the flavors to meld
~rummage through your fridge to find things that will make the soup taste better, some options: fish sauce (it sounds bad, but it is a miracle), mustard, soy sauce, hot sauce (not too much), etc. You're looking for something to make the umami flavor increase
~take off the heat; juice of one lemon or lime, add in

Then eat!
