I made dinner last night and everyone like it...a miracle.
Black Bean Soup
I did a quick soak of the beans and then set them to boiling in some chicken broth.
Then I sauteed green onion, bell pepper and carrots all diced up in oil, cumin, cayenne, black pepper, salt and garlic powder.
Added that to the beans, poured in some OJ which gave it a yummy citrus flavor that really contrasted well with the peppery cayenne.
I served it with diced tomatoes, avocados, grated cheese and sour cream. Everyone could do their own toppings.
H had a friend walk in the door with her and ask to stay for dinner and all the kids and Katie all liked it! I liked it too..and it was healthy. SCORE :)
