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!
that sounds interesting... and I agree the salsa needs a little texture :o) I will look if we have black beans in our store.... if not can we replace them with kidney beans?ReplyDelete
Mmmm, yum, yum! Do you need a taste tester 'cos I is VERY good at that job, heheReplyDelete

Hmmm, we make black bean soup too but we don't puree them first AND we add a good amount of garlic and onion. I am glad you found a yummy recipe that doesn't break the bank!ReplyDelete
have never tried black bean - not a big bean fan but hubby loves themReplyDelete
Looks good. Totally different from how ghostwriter makes it.ReplyDelete
Yum. I make a lot of soups, but not blended ones. This recipe actually reminds me of tortilla soup I make. Same ingredients, minus one can of beans and plus a rotisserie chicken, onion, and rotel. (Chips, cheese, cilantro, and avocado as toppings if you please.)ReplyDelete
Momma says she's going to try this. She's always looking for easy recipes.ReplyDelete
Am a HYYOOOOJJJ bean fan (no surprise there!) - there could be all sorts of variations on the easy as peas-y recipe!!! Thanks for the pre-blend tip &*> YAM xx
Finally, someone's prices more expensive than CaliforniaReplyDelete
