Black beans are high in fiber and antioxidants. They are packed with protein and are considered a superfood.

In this recipe you can use canned black beans or make your own from dried black beans. If you cook a big batch and freeze in smaller portions you can make this hearty, delicious soup in just 30 minutes.

Good served hot or chilled, garnished with plain yogurt, chopped cucumber, and green onions. Be sure to remove the bay leaves before serving.
