Very nourishing!



In a small bowl, mash 1 can black beans until smooth; set aside. In a large saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients and remaining can of beans. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer covered for 10-15 minutes. Add mashed beans, stirring to combine. Discard bay leaf before serving.

If you have 15 minutes, you can have soup! I made mine on tne soup setting in my Instant Pot, which is 30 minutes, and it was delicious. It is really inexpensive and perfect for a meatless meal.

This soup is made with my favorite kind of bean, other than green beans, of course. :) This tastes great!
