Once upon a time, and any years ago a local (to me) sandwich shop offered a black bean soup as their soup of the day. It didn't take long for this soup to become a favorite of mine and my coworkers and we marked that day of the work week on our calendars as black bean soup and sandwich day. Then, the shop stopped offering it. While disappointed at the loss of a local staple, I didn't get discouraged and set out on a quest to find a recipe that "sounded" like the soup tasted so that I could make it whenever I wanted it. I searched the internet far and wide, and eventually found this recipe and I've been making it ever since. Eventually, the shop started to offer their black bean soup again, however, I found that it didn't compare to what I was making using this recipe. Yeah! I had found a winner. It's easy to put together and everyone that I've served it to loves it. You can mix it up easily with using your own favorite dry seasonings or a different sausage.
Give this recipe a try, and I think you'll add it to your soup section as a go to comfort item like I do.Read More
I've been making this soup for almost 20 years!! I just found it here online because I lost my tattered old copy of the recipe, and was shocked to see it only has one - 1-star!! - review!! This is SO EASY and SO yummy. And love that it only has 291 cals, 18 g of protein and 7g of fiber per serving! We love it with some kale thrown in as well. HEALTHY and YUMMY.Read More
