This is excellent. Quick, easy and, in my opinion, hearty. It's a cold (-8) day and this really hit the spot for lunch. I used a 19oz can of black beans and did not drain it. I never do as there is way too much flavor and nutrition in the liquid to it wash away. I skipped the oil and the cooking of the spices and just added them into the soup with all of the ingredients at the same time. That includes 1/2 of a fresh onion I had in the fridge in place of the frozen onion ask for and 1/2 tsp of minced fresh garlic from a jar. Lovely flavor that I enjoyed a lot. I think I'll be making this a lot over the winter. Thanks for this one Tali.
