Black Bean Soup

It's still cold here. In fact we had a record low of -15 degrees on Saturday so I decided to make soup. I found a good recipe in the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Eating Well for Black Bean Soup. It was quick, easy, and tasty. I've been reading Gluten Free Girl - the book and the blog. I like her idea of eating naturally GF foods instead of trying to recreate the goodies I ate before I went GF. This soup fits that idea - no substitutions or figuring out which flours to use. I've been using packaged foods for the last couple of months even though I really enjoy cooking. I got a couple of GF cookbooks for Christmas so I think I'll try to cook something a couple of times a week. I live alone so I end up eating leftovers for a couple of days after I make a meal. Try the soup. It's very good.

More later...

  1. Hey Johanna--It's definitely soup weather! I'm eating a spicier version of my chicken tortilla soup this evening. Yum. Will check out the black bean soup. I made a soup recipe last week that included black beans, but they weren't the main ingredient because I used what I had on hand (black beans, chickpeas, white beans). I love black beans so next time I want them to be the main ingredient--thanks! :-)
