Weekly Recipe: Black Bean Soup

Saute in a little oil:
1 chopped large onion
1 c. sliced celery
3 garlic cloves

Add:
3 - 6 c. chicken broth or bouillon (depending on the amount of rice you use)
2 cans black beans
1 jar salsa
1 c. diced turkey bacon*
1 - 6 c. cooked rice**
1 T lime juice
1 t. cumin

Heat thoroughly.

*Wellshire Farms has an excellent turkey bacon with no nitrates or nitrites. Available at Whole Foods.
**For easy rice, add 1 ¾ c. boiling water for each cup of dry rice to a casserole dish, like CorningWare, with a lid. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes. Fluff for perfect rice! If making just rice for dinner, add butter and/or seasoning to rice before cooking. You may vary the amount of rice in this recipe, depending on how chunky or thin you want the soup.
