I miss my country so much. Specially the food, so when I feel home sick and far I treat my self and my loved ones with a vegan version of my favourite Mexican dishes. My vegan version of black bean soup can be eaten cold or hot and it is perfect for a nice quiet lunch in the gardens.

  • 1 medium onion
  • 4oo ml of soy cream
  • olive oil
  • pepper and salt to taste
  • Epazote if you have, if not, that is ok too! add a teaspoon of dried oregano

 

For the garnish (optinal but ymmm):

  • 1 avocado
  • 110g of vegan motzarella
  • a drizzel of oil
  • 3 fried tortillas de maiz
