"This sounds like a really good black bean soup...though I love most ALL black bean soup! I'll update once I've tried it. I'm posting this for ZWT 4. This is a recipe I got by Cinda Sanners from her "Soup Buffet" show."
celery, finely diced
sweet onion, finely diced
red pepper, finely diced
fresh tomato, chopped
fresh garlic, minced
fresh ginger, minced
1 tablespoon canola oil or 1 tablespoon
black beans, canned including liquid
( 4 - 15 oz. cans)
sour cream, can add a spoonful on top
In a large stock pot, sauté celery, onion, red pepper, tomatoes, garlic and ginger in oil over medium heat until vegetables are tender and onion is clear.
Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve hot.
