I forgot! I shredded mint leaves in it too!
Ok. The soup. I submitted it, but it has yet to be approved.
1 giant can or 2 16-oz cans of black beans rinsed & drained.
1 cup each diced celery, onion, carrot
2 cloves garlic minced
1 pound ground turkey or chicken
5 cans low sodium chicken broth
spices to taste (I use cummin, adobo, black pepper and red pepper flakes)
Sautee the turkey/chiken. When cooked through remove from stock pot and add the veggies and cook until onions turn translucent (you may need a drizzle of olive oil). Add the cooked meat back into the pot along with the spices (1 generous tbsp of cummin, 1 tbsp of adobo, 1 tsp black pepper and the red pepper flakes depending on your level of tolerance...oh, yeah also a generous tbsp or two of parsley. Add the chicken broth and simmer at least 1/2 hour to blend the flavors.
As a variation, I do NOT drain the beans and I add 2 tbsp of balsalmic vinegar. The soup gets thicker, like a stew.
