Black Bean and Spinach Soup

Here's a quick and inexpensive meal you can prepare in about 3 minutes. Black beans for protein and fiber, spinach for the strength of Popeye. If you're feeling hungry and lazy, you'll love the simplicity of this dish.

I use Trader Joe's Cuban Style Black Beans because they're already prepared with onions, green peppers, garlic, mild vinegar and spices. Sodium is 370g/serving, which is not too salty. 

  1. Spoon some beans and liquid from the can into a saucepan. 
  2. Add a handful or two of prewashed spinach. 
  3. Simmer on medium heat just until beans start to bubble and spinach wilts. 
That's it. You now have a lovely bowlful of Black Bean and Spinach Soup, and all you had to do was warm it up.
