Tangy vegetable soup

This month , the Men's Health Mag (US Edition) has its front page featuring on Obama who is the newly elected president of America . I think for most people , they think he deserved because we believe he will make a revolutionary change to the world .
Almost got carried away by that, I found this recipe in this month magazine . In my fridge , i got a bundle of celery which i bought last week . And after reading through the recipe , I found most of the ingredients used also in my cabinet and fridge. I got excited as i going to try something new today .

There is what i used :

5 tablespoon of olive oil
3 medium size tomatoes
3 stalks of celery
1 can of Heinz (no added salt ) Baked Beans
1 bulb of onion
1 hand sized cauliflower
1/2 carrot

-Pepper and salt added up to your taste .

How I Make it :
Put 3 tablespoon of olive oil in the bottom of the pot on medium heat .Add chopped onions first then followed by carrot, celery and cook. Stir occasionally until it is fragrant (about 10 minutes) .
Add the remaining olive oil, seasoning with salt and pepper as you go.
Add the chopped cauliflower last ,stir occasionally until everything is softened but not browned . Adjust heat as necessary.
Add chopped tomatoes and stir . After that , add the whole can of Heinz Baked Beans into the pot (including the bean-cooking-liquid and 2.5 cups of water ) Make sure the whole mixture is stewy and not too watery .

Tips: 2 tablespoon of corn flour is enough to make the mixture stewy , don't make it too stewy as it will be taste like paste rather than soup.

Keep it cooking till the vegetables are very tender (it is around 10 minutes after Baked Beans is poured )

Serve hot or warm.

4 servings

Good Luck to everyone who wants to try!
