My Black Bean Soup

It rocks! Comforting and satiating, bold and hot...the deep color represents the taste in every way. Start with a bag of quality black beans, rinsed and then put in a pot with water, and a mixture of garlic, peppers, onion, and green herbs! Simmer for hours and voila! The best fall / winter soup. Learned it from Daisy Martinez, a chef on TV.

I believe the greenish mixture is what makes it... it is officially called CULANTRO and you can make a bunsh of it and FREEZE. Wow. It was really a treat.

Yuum. Does anyone have a good recipe for split pea soup? I always love ordering it and I've never tried making it. Any ideas??

ok. love it and have to try it. Do you have a pressure cooker? It is the best!!!! My mother-in-law bought me one and I use it at least 3 times a week. I make the best faki (lentil soup) and black eyed peas, fasolada lathera...everything. It only takes 30-40 minutes!
