Still swapping

Our theme this week was vegetarian dishes and I received this recipe from Melissa at Lemons & Love.  This soup is delicious and is perfect for a quick, easy and filling meal.  I made it for myself for lunch, since (as you all know by now) Frank doesn't eat beans.  I really enjoyed it!

There were a few ingredients missing in Melissa's recipe description so I added them into my very slight adaptation below.  I halved the recipe since I was the only one eating (enough for 2).  And of course, I had to add chopped red onion to mine :)

Thanks for the recipe, Melissa!

Black Bean & Salsa Soup
from Lemons & Love

2 cans black beans (15 ounces each), drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 cup chunky salsa
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
hot sauce (at your discretion...I used a good amount)
salt and pepper to taste
sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, diced red onion

In a food processor or blender, combine beans, broth, salsa, paprika, hot sauce and cumin. Blend until fairly smooth.  Heat the bean mixture in a saucepan over medium heat until thoroughly heated. 

Garnish with sour cream, onion and shredded cheese.

It looks delicious, but to make it actually vegetarian you will need to sub the chicken broth for vegetable broth.

Hi! I'm having a linky party called A Themed Baker's Sunday where this week's theme is cheesecake! I'd love for you to join and link up! If you don't have a cheesecake recipe, I'd love for you to come back for this next weeks theme, which is tomorrow, and it's cakes and cake pops!

ktkimmle, you're right - if you look at the original recipe, it's offered as an alternative.

I love soup, Melissa, and this looks like a good one. Thanks for sharing it!
