Black Bean Improv Soup

July 15th, 2020 — 7:50pm

We had some leftover liquid from a chicken soup my sister made last week and I didn’t want it to go to waste so I improvised a black bean soup.

Black bean improv soup:

Chop half a giant onion and a yellow bell pepper; sautée in butter and olive oil till soft and slightly browned

Throw in a few cloves of minced garlic, cook (low) another couple minutes, then add chicken broth (I used the remains of that soup from last week)

Add two cans of black beans (undrained, bean juice and all)

Cook a while. Add more broth or water if necessary. Throw in a handful of white rice and simmer till veggies, beans, and rice are soft (make sure there’s enough liquid for the rice to absorb)

Add some salt and quite a bit of Trader Joe’s chili-lime seasoning, tasting frequently. YUM. Add some grated cheese and a squeeze of lime to your bowl for extra yum.

Bowl of soup
