Cuban Black Bean Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by kitty.rock

I got this recipe from the Bob's Red Mill website, and it is awesome! I adjusted the sequence and ingredients a bit to suit me. It's my favorite Black Bean recipe so far, and I've tried a half dozen over the last few weeks, looking for just the right taste. This one has it! Serve it over cooked brown rice or cooked kasha and bulgur wheat for more fiber. You can use vegetable stock instead of chicken if desired.

I loved this. I added a can of chopped mild green chilies and served it over cooked rice. Next time I'll serve it over quinoa for added protein. It was fast and easy, too. My son thought it should be a bit spicier, but I prefer to make it as is and he can put a little sriracha in his.
