Bean, Tomato & Herbs Soup

There are some days when you have almost nothing in your kitchen but it is too late to go grocery shopping... but you still have to cook something and eat? Well, this recipe was born like that. I only had tomatoes, some baked kidney beans and a bunch of herbs, but it still ended up being delicious and it is great in terms of nutrients- protein and fiber from the beans, lycopene and other vitamins from the tomatoes and A LOT of flavour from the basil and the oregano.
