Soul Satisfied

Need more soul-full goodness? 
Here's a tasty soup that will warm you from the inside: 

T's Cuban Black Bean Soup

Dice 1/2 yellow onion
Slice a carrot
Mince 2 cloves garlic
Saute in 1 Tbsp. olive oil for 6-7 minutes, medium heat.

Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon (OR 1 teaspoon cumin)
Add 1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder
Cook for 1 minute, stirring often being careful not to burn.

Add 1-15 oz can rinsed black beans
Add 1-15 oz can diced tomatoes
Add 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer. Cook for 30 minutes.

You can use an immersion blender before serving, or not.
Either way you have a heart-warming, soul-satisfying soup.
Serve with sour cream & grated cheddar cheese. 

What satisfies your soul?


  1. I love Mumford and Sons! I had never heard of them until the Grammy Awards when performed with another of my favorites - The Avett Brothers. Good friends, good food, good music - all soul satisfiers!

  2. Absolutely, I couldn't agree more Tracy!
