Black Beans

I just had to get this recipe from my great aunt after she served it to me for lunch the other day. I tried to make it from memory, but I botched it. So I'm looking forward to trying again, now that I have the recipe. Now my aunt labeled this soup but didn't serve it that way. She used a slotted spoon and just served the beans and veggies over rice. It was very yummy that way with corn muffins on the side!

Black Bean Soup
1small onion chopped/diced
2 carrots finely chopped/diced
Saute in 1-2 T oil and cook until tender.
Add 2 crushed cloves of garlic.
Saute about 1minute - do not brown (makes the garlic bitter)
2 cans of black beans
1/2 tsp. thyme
1 cup chicken broth /bullion
1can diced tomatoes
Cook over low heat for 5 min or until it starts to bubble.
3 T apple cider vinegar.
dash of Cayenne pepper (optional)
Cook over low heat for about 15min. or longer

this sounds really delicious. When I get back from Laf I will make this.

BTW i hate you for getting me hooked on Crisco, Butter Flavored Crisco and all varieties that lie within.
I blame you.

but I'm of two minds. I also love you.
