As much as it pains me to say it-I think I need a little break from cake. I think a healthy soup is in order.
Unless you add a little sour cream to it when serving.
Which I did.
Oh well, it's still healthy and vegetarian. And really yummy. The perfect soup to warm you up as we wait for spring.
I'm no longer calling it winter around here. It's "pre-spring time."
The power of postive thinking.
Ingredients: 2-3 cans of black beans (drained and rinsed), 1/2 red onion, 1 tablespoon minced garlic, 1 teaspoon chili powder (or more/less to your tastes), 2 cups vegetable stock, 1 tablespoon olive oil and salt+pepper to taste.
In a pot, heat oil and saute the chopped onions until soft (2-3 minutes). Add the garlic, salt, pepper and chili powder and cook for another minute. Turn the heat down a bit and add in the stock and black beans. Let the flavors cook together for 5-8 minutes (add more salt and pepper if needed). Serve hot with sour cream.
Or with some homemade super cheesy/spicy scones (spoiler alert for tomorrow's post).
