The Canadian Dollar is worth .73 US cents, .65 Euros, and 1.02 Australian Dollars.
I recently came across this recipe on All Recipes, for a black bean soup. I am not much of a chef (I don't enjoy cooking), but this is one of the easiest and yummiest things I make.
Here is what you need:
- 2 cans of black beans - $1.49 a can
- 1 1/2 cups of veggie broth - on sale for $2 a box
- 1 cup of salsa - $4.49
- 1 teaspoon of cumin - the jar is about $7
The total price to make a pot (as you use half the box of broth and about half the salsa and a tiny bit of cumin) is under $7. This will make up my lunch for at least 4 days this week.
Now for the recipe:
Wash the beans, add them and the stock to the blender. (The recipe says to blend the salsa too, but I don't, I like the little bit of texture it adds).
|It turns a beautiful purply colour|
Pour into a sauce pan, add the salsa.
Add the cumin.
Stir and heat up. It is that easy!
The recipe suggests topping with a little sour cream and green onion. Since I am living a low dairy life (and am not wasting my dairy on that), I serve with a handful of my new favourite corn chips, which are about $5 a bag.
If you decide to try this, let me know what you think!
