So along with my new friend here came a new recipe for black bean soup here.
Now Sam is not a soup kind of kid. He doesn't really like to eat it; none of my kids do, which is frustrating for me because soup's an easy thing to make and I love it. But my kids ate ALL of this (except for Phenix because it wasn't candy), including Sam who just kept spooning it into his mouth. The best part? It took all of 5 minutes to make and maybe cost $1.50 (because I used my own homemade canned salsa).
And then you can add anything else to it, make a little soup bar.
Sam loved it with grilled chicken. I loved it with fresh tomatoes, grilled chicken, avocado, sour cream, and maybe some cheese.
Black Bean and Salsa Soup
(she has a pretty picture on her website, but I can't copy it. How did she do that???)
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1.5 c. vegetable broth
1 c. salsa
1 t. cumin
sour cream, green onion, shredded cheese for garnishing
Combine beans, broth, salsa and cumin in a food processor. Blend until fairly smooth. Heat soup in a saucepan over medium heat until thoroughly heated. Put soup in bowls and garnish as desired.
I hope Sam loves it again.
You never know.
