Heddy's Black and Red Bean Soup
A yummy soup that even picky kids will love! Red beans and black beans are mildly seasoned and simmered in vegetable broth. With these ingredients this is a healthy vegetarian soup with a complete protein. If you add the chili powder, leave out the maple syrup. It totally changes the taste. Garnish with sour cream, green onions and tortilla chips for a festive meal. This is great served with cornbread.
With my weak blender I pour the water from the can of corn right into the blender, when I dump the corn in the pot of soup. That way, when I add the last can of red beans and the tomatoes into the blender there is enough liquid to process it all.
This freezes well, and some say it tastes even better as leftovers on the second or third day.
