this was something that was thrown together in about 25 minutes, and it turned out really well, so i thought i'd toss it on the blog for anyone who might be interested. it's really similar to my black bean and tomato soup soup, but i like it a lot more.
quick, from-the-pantry, good-enough-to-blog-about soup1 medium onion
1 stalk celery
about 1/2 cup frozen corn
about 1/2 cup frozen peas
1 can black beans (you could use the spiced ones, but i just used plain)
1 can hunts fire roasted tomatoes with garlic (you could use another kind, but you'd be disappointed. these are awesome.)
1 can vegetable broth
herbs and spices (add to taste)salt
cilantro (i used the paste)
lime juice (not really an herb or spice, but i add it like it is)
i added noodles and chicken and carrots to sam's bowl, and he recommends those additions (he kept shaking his head for more--see photo of him anticipating his next spoonful).
he also thought my homemade applesauce sidedish was pretty awesome too.
