This is a great high fiber, low carb one dish meal. Don't be afraid of the cinnamon and allspice, it really compliments the entire dish. My kids love black bean soup, and I wanted to incorporate some pumpkin I had (you can never sneak in enough vegetables). This was a wonderful filling meal and I loved the balsamic in the finished dish. I froze half of it (it freezes nicely) for a cold autumn day. Also nice topped with some sharp cheddar & serve with some warm rolls. Thanks for sharing!
Fantastic! The texture was nice and thick. I blended it as directed, but just left a tad bit unpureed. I thought it was spiced perfectly, without being "spicy." The final touch of the balsamic vinegar was fabulous. Thanx for a healthy delicious soup!
