You Will Need:
2 Cans Black Beans I like Goya or an organic brand
3 cloves of garlic chopped ( more to taste – we love garlic!)
1/4 – 1/2 tea crushed red pepper flakes

Base for almost all my soups – A Mirepoix Seriouseats.com about-mirepoix

2 small / med carrots rough chopped
2 stalks of celery 

1/2 med white onion (save some for garnish)


Lime – at end for garnish
Lg handful of fresh Clilantro – washed stems removed and chopped – set aside for garnish
1/2 cube Vegetable Bouillon (keep veggie, chicken or beef bouillons on hand in fridge for cooking esp. if you don’t have stock or broth just add water and your set – these are highly overlooked – don’t tell me I’m sure loaded with bad things…. but work out pretty good for me all these years n a pinch or just added flavor)



Saute the “mirepoix” with S&P (light on Salt – the bouillon will be your salt – promise you can always add more at the end or I prefer each person salt their own – Tabasco replace that for me too)
Turn heat to med/low add garlic & red pepper flakes (DON’T BURN YOUR GARLIC!)
Add 2 cans beans – un drained – sauté 2-3 min. just don’t burn – slight boil
Add water (fill soup / spaghetti pot almost 2/3 way up – use filtered water if possible)
Crumble or chop your Bouillon add & Stir – bring heat to med – high and boil 5 min
If you are having meat add chopped raw bacon or ham for flavor and remember this will give you more salt.
Boil uncovered 5 min.  Add more H2O if needed reduce heat cover and simmer for 30 – 45 min.  Stirring occasionally 
(towards longer side if your adding bacon)
*This cooks pretty fast and with in an hour you are ready 


Serve topped w/raw onion or green onion, fresh cilantro, a squeeze of lime – maybe some sour cream as well if dairy is in your diet & dash or two or three – LOL of Tabasco.


Voila:  You have a great meal that will carry you over for days or feed a crowd – is inexpensive, quick and filling.  *Oh Yeah I have found these black bean sprouted crackers that taste like corn chips I am just crazy for.  Seriously DLISH!
