Binne's always delish tortilla soup

Pre cook 1 cup black beans, set aside. In a big soup pot, pop 1 tsp mustard seeds in about 2 tbs coconut oil. Then add about 1 tsp ground cumin and 1/3 tsp ground corriander, and almost immediately add 1 med carrot, finely shredded, and one small celery stick finely diced. Sautee on med for a few mins and add 1 cup chopped cabbage. Fry this until things are getting soft and add 1 tsp smoked paprika and 1 tsp regular paprika ( sub either reg paprika or chili powder A-OK), and about 1 tbs dried parsley and 3/4 tsp dried oregano and 1/2 tsp fresh cracked black pepp. Stir for a few and then add 1 large coarse chopped tomato, fry a few mins longer, add 1 tsp turmeric and salt I taste (1 tbs?). Then add about 8 cups water and beans. Then add 3 cups baby spinach. Bring to a LOW simmer and after spinach wilts enough turn heat off, then add about 5 small, thin sliced fresh small corn tortillas ( u don't have to fry, u could use chips etc) and about 3/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro and juice of 1/2 fresh lime. Stir, let sit 5 mins, offer and serve! Could add shredded jack cheese on top, cotija even better.
