Nicely spiced black bean soup, it certainly would be good with garlic bread! I used only one can of beans since I was making this for three of us and left the amount of veggies the same and added the optional kale, which made this soup just beautiful. I added some hot chili sauce to mine for heat - otherwise wouldn't change a thing.
Great soup! I didn't have any tomato juice so I added a can of fire roasted tomatoes with green chilies... it was a bit too spicy so I added some balsamic vinegar and cheese to cool it off. I also added some white kidney beans for color. Thanks for posting, I'm sure I'll be making this again.
