Black Bean and Corn Soup

If you are looking for a hearty and flavorful soup well look no further cause this is the soup for you.

I love black beans, so I figured why not put them in a soup. Although I am not 100% vegan anymore, my diet is still heavily plant based and I always love a hearty plant-based meal.

This soup requires minimal prep and takes no time from start to finish. I love a lot of flavor, so I always add in extra spices so as I always say – adjust to your preference.

And I know that cilantro isn’t everyone’s thing (still don’t get that) so it is optional.

Enjoy and don’t forget to tag me in your creations!
