Black Bean Soup

I didn't use a recipe. My ingredients were: 2 onions, 3 cloves of garlic, some olive oil, 1 jalapeno pepper, hot pepper flakes, cumin seeds, cumin, maybe 2 cups of water, 1 vegetable stock cube, 1 can of diced tomatoes, 2 cans of black beans, and about 1 cup of cilantro.

I chopped up some onions, and fried them in olive oil. Then I added 3 cloves of garlic, whole, and continued to fry. I added a chopped jalapeno pepper (with seeds and all) and cumin seeds left over from pakoras way back when.

Then I added a can of diced tomatoes, which I let bring to a boil, before simmering. I added a cup or so of water, some ground cumin, a cube of vegetable stock, and two cans of rinsed black beans. I let this simmer for a while, before adding a cup of so of chopped cilantro, and continued to let simmer. Then I used my hand blender to smooth it out, before serving it with a dollop of sour supreme. It was delicious... nice and spicy and filling. I'm going to bring it into work tomorrow.

Looks great! My throat is sore this morning so soup will be perfect tonight. I also don't usually use a recipe for soups, i love how creative but tasty they end up!
