In a Flash Black Bean Soup
By Mary McDougall
Here is another simple recipe that I have been making for years. It is very easy to prepare, yet it tastes like you have been in the kitchen all day preparing this crowd-pleaser.
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 10 min
1 Drain the beans and set 1 1/4 cups aside. Place the remaining beans, broth and salsa in a blender jar and process until fairly smooth. Pour into a saucepan. Mash the reserved beans slightly with a fork and add to the pan along with the remaining ingredients. Cook gently over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Serve with a loaf of hearty whole-grain bread to dunk into the soup. Or serve as a topping over whole grains or baked potatoes.
