Bob’s Black Beans

February snow

M and I are home in New Jersey after a family filled stay in warm and sunny Florida. I was beyond delighted to watch snow cover the ground our first morning back. The chilly frost begged for a bowl of chunky hot soup and southern-style cornbread. Although this bean soup begins with a bagged mix, the fresh veggies and yummy seasonings give it a complete homemade feel. It takes a few minutes to get started (sauteing veggies), but then it’s just a quick stir every now and again while it simmers for an hour and half. The magic is in the smoked paprika which gives it a rich flavor that usually comes from something like a ham hock. This recipe is entirely veggie-based and hungry-man approved!

A few modifications based on the contents in my fridge: no corn, canned whole tomatoes blended and carrots & sweet potatoes instead of butternut squash
