Last week I made wonderful black bean soup. I boiled a cut up head of cabbage and a can of black beans in a pot of beef broth. To this, I added oregano, basil and salt to taste. After 40 min, I stuck the whole soup in the blender to create a really thick creamy soup (only because I don't like big pieces of cabbage, I suspect this would be just as good without blending). It has been a yummy lunch/snack for a week now!
