This or something quite similar is the usual result when I want something home-cooked that’s still fast and easy to put together. And it’s support for keeping my pantry well stocked, as everything here came right from it.
Black Bean Soup
- 2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 can tomatoes diced, with juice
- 1 T tomato paste
- 1/4 C onion
- 2 T olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, pressed
- 1 heaped t cumin
- 1 t chili powder
- 2 C beef broth
Saute onion and garlic in olive oil in a soup pot until soft. Add cumin and chili powder, stir for 30 seconds, then add everything else. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat down. simmer for 10-15 minutes and serve. Taco chips, sour cream, and avocado would all be delightful on top.
