Black Bean Soup
It's hard to believe that four ingredients can be this crazy delicious! It doesn't get any faster either. An excellent first food that you can also serve to family. This recipe is a great way to wrap your brain around how you can prepare WLS-friendly food that your family will also love! I serve this to my family with grilled cheese sandwiches - supper is on the table in fifteen minutes. Everyone will LOVE this meal.
- 2 cans black beans, drained
- 2 cups chicken broth - Swanson Natural Goodness is excellent
