food on friday: black bean soup

We love, love, love this soup. It has rocked our original food world! :D

It's the easiest meal to make ever, it's filling, vegan and good for you!

Here are the ingredients you'll need:

 3 cans black beans or equivalent {undrained}
{if using canned Bush's beans are the best- if homemade, make sure they're somewhat pre-seasoned with salt}
{1} 7 oz. can green chiles
1-2 tsp. garlic salt  {this is to your taste- start with 1 and add more if needed}
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tbs. olive oil

Here's what you do:

1. add all ingredients together and blend

option 1: you can use an immersion blender right in your pan or 
option 2: combine all ingredients in your blender or food processor and then add to saucepan

it should look about like this:

2. Heat on medium heat until warm.
{or cover and heat in the microwave if you have no time!}

The longer the simmer, the better the taste {of course} but we find that this is the perfect meal for lunch or a busy night. :D It makes 3-5 bowls, and it's so good!

You could also get creative and add other ingredients if you have the time...onions, bell peppers, sour cream etc. Make it just how you like it! :D
