Black Bean Soup

Yesterday I made the BEST black bean soup ever. Recipe:
2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can veg broth
1 carrot, shredded
1/2 red onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp cumin
dash of cayenne
Saute the veggies in oil and spices a few minutes, then add broth and beans. Cook on low 25 minutes, then let cool. Puree in blender. Serve with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and a dollop of sour cream. YUM.

Brendan wrinkled his nose and refused to eat it, but he missed out. Ingrid and I ate two bowls apiece! We made corn muffins to go along and it was a great meal that was really filling. Tonight is lentil stew with homemade bread, another thing Brendan will probably refuse to eat. Please do not pass that on to Ingrid, she is gung ho about eating ANYTHING!!
Here she is eating her soup last night. Bath time was directly after dinner time.

Sounds delicious. Cumin is really good with black beans.

Sounds yummy - the girls would love it, but is veg broth in a can the same thing as chicken stock? Or is it something different?

I think it's the same, only no chicken in it. You can use chicken broth, too.
