We ran across this wonderful recipe on the website Ava Jane’s Kitchen, a lovely site with some unique food products and recipes. We couldn’t resist this soup recipe because garlic is extremely healing and black beans are one of the more nutrient rich legumes. Plus this was the perfect recipe for adding our Land & SEAsoning and for sprinkling in some Nori flakes for added flavor and nutrition. It’s a win-win!
It starts with some Ava Jane’s Kitchen Avocado Oil, and ends with an extra sprinkle of Ava Jane’s Kitchen spice blend – Hot Roasted Garlic. This recipe has the perfect seasonings for this hearty soup. There’s nothing better when it’s freezing cold outside than a hot, spicy soup, and this fits the bill. It’s also something you can make with mostly pantry items. Serves 4 to 6, and prep time is approximately 30 minutes.
