So I know I told you all about my soup making bonanza the other week, but that was actually just scratching the surface of my autumnal soup-making obsession.
The ultimate soup, the stuff I’ve been living on, deserves its own post/salute, and that’s exactly what this is.
Here’s the last bowl of the beauteous stuff that I had for lunch today, glistening in the sun, sprinkled with Sriracha.
Ahh, black bean soup. Here is my recipe that I invented back in the spring. It is economical (dried beans, holla!), healthful, and crazy delish.
And it is good with SO MANY THINGS! Today’s lunch:
Along with the aforementioned soup I had a pumpkin muffin+ apple slices (this is the last of the farmer’s market apples- I’m keeping them in the fridge as long as I can and rationing them!)
Black bean soup and Sriracha is RAWTHER good!
With red pepper slices and a pear grilled cheese. Mm mm mm already posted this sandwich but man this was a sandwich experience. I think it deserves another closeup:
In a more Latin-influenced mood:
With pepitas, avocado, and a TJ’s flax tortilla. YUMMM!
With plain yogurt (who needs sour cream?) green onion and TJ’s sweet potato chips.
Clearly I’ve been thawing and microwaving them individually. Apologies for the ugly crust around the bowls.
Plain yogurt and heavenly TJ’s chipotle salsa.
Salad with pepitas and more TJ’s sweet potato chips (I’m obsessed with these- so good! And they’re just vegetables and healthy oil!)
And here it is all mixed up and delicious, like modern art!
Please please please make this soup. It’s awesome. And, as I have hopefully demonstrated, you can do a gazillion things with it!
