This Black Bean Soup is a staple in my home kitchen. And it could not be easier to make. AND it's a smart meal choice - if you're like me - and trying to achieve something like losing 100 pounds of baby weight.
(Have I mentioned that I have lost 65 pounds of my 100 pounds of Preggers baby weight in just 4 months? Thanks to things like this Black Bean Soup... and LOTS AND LOTS of exercise.)
the recipe for SAVORY BLACK BEAN SOUP
2 16 ounce cans of Black Beans (reduced sodium)
fill one of the empty cans with filtered water
fill the other empty can with Original V8 (reduced sodium)
1/2 cup of green bell pepper, chopped
and 3 green onions (chives), chopped
in a medium sauce pan, on low heat, covered - for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.
This recipe makes enough soup for about 4 to 6 heaping bowls of soup; you can also enjoy the beans with brown rice for a low-calorie Black Beans and White Rice fix.
It's Super Filling, Good for You - AND Savory (the best part!) - because who wants to eat boring diet food? No one does.
