Almost Organic Minestrone Soup with a Latin twist

I call this ALMOST organic because I added 2 ingredients non-organic: canned beans and soy meat. But everything else came from our grandparents farm (no pesticides)

You will need:
3 cups of water
4-5 roma tomatoes diced
1 stalk of celery diced
1 medium onion diced
2 cloves of garlic diced
2 medium carrots sliced
let cook for about 30 minutes then add can of beans your choice(black or red) and mash the soup while still cooking low heat (like making mash potatoes style)
this will make soup not as runny, and cook on low heat another 10 minutes.
and you can add soy meat or not it is up to you.(BOCA soy meat or I used dehydrated soy meat)
parsley or cilantro to your taste
I used salt and pepper to flavor and bit of oregano(here you can flavor it or add what spices you have in your cupboard)
and for my Latin TWIST: add pickled jalapenos
