I found the original recipe for this on AllRecipes.com. I made some changes to it to work with what I had in my fridge. After looking at the original recipe I think I may try it now that I have most of the ingredients at home. I usually make this with water but I had vegetable broth so I used that.
Black Bean Soup
Adapted from AllRecipes.com
1 19 z black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp canola oil
1/2 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp salt
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup frozen corn (you could add up to 3/4 cup)
1 cup water, vegetable stock or chicken stock
freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp lemon juice (I like this sour so I added 2 tbsp)
In the oil, saute the onion and garlic until the onion is translucent. Add the cumin powder, cayenne pepper and salt. Cook for about 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Add the frozen corn and black beans and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the water/vegetable stock/chicken stock and bring to a boil. Partially cover and let cook for 20 minutes on med-low heat. Add black pepper and lemon juice to taste.
