Super Easy Black Bean Soup

Warm and Tasty!

Serves 3-4

Ingredients:
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 1/2 Tsp. Unsalted Mexican Seasoning (I use Frontier Brand)
1 Small Onion, Chopped
3 Cans of Black Beans (or 2 of Black Beans and 1 of Pinto), Rinsed and Drained
1 1/2 C. Water
Salt to Taste (About 1 Tsp.)
Yogurt, Sour Cream or Tofutti Sour Supreme (if you're vegan) to Top *Be sure to check your labels if you're on a gluten free diet!

Heat the oil in a medium sized pot. Add the chopped onion and saute over medium heat until the onions become translucent. Add in the salt and Mexican seasoning and continue to saute for about a minute, stirring frequently so that the spices don't burn. Add in the beans and saute for another minute. Add the water and allow the mix to come to a simmer. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a minute, then blend with an emulsion blender or in a food processor in small batches. Return to the stove and bring back to a simmer. Add more water if necessary. Simmer for 15 minutes then serve hot and top with yogurt, sour cream or Tofutti Sour Supreme if desired.
