Vegan Harrissa Bean Soup

by Nia Garcia

I love going to the New York location of Atlas Cafe and enjoying their vegan version of Harissa or Harira soup. It's basically a bean soup made with harrissa (a chili paste used in Mediterranean cuisine).

I make my own bean soup with chili paste at home. Although not authentic or as delicious as the one at Atlas Cafe this satisfies me until the next time I go back.

Bean Soup flovored with Chili Paste


*Beans (I like small red beans, lentils and mung beans with a few navy or canary beans thrown in)

*Enough Water to cook the beans

*Vegetables (I like greens, potatoes, carrots, a small amount of celery and onions)

*Spices to taste (chili paste, smoked paprika, garlic, tarragon, sage, black pepper, sea salt and a touch of cumin)

*Small can of tomato paste

*Large can of crushed tomatoes

*A couple Tablespoons of oil (optional)

*Extra Water if needed


Start by cooking beans according to the package or your preferred method. Add the other ingredients and cook over medium or low heat until it is to your liking.
