Tomato and Black Bean Soup

This is a quick recipe that calls for canned goods that you may already have on hand.
Of course if you prefer, you can prepare the beans etc. from scratch.
3 cups vegetable stock / 1-2 bouillon cubes & 3 cups water
1 large can tomatoes
1 can black beans
½ medium cooking onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
olive/vegetable oil
chili powder, to taste
ground coriander, to taste
ground cumin, to taste
sugar, to taste
balsamic vinegar, to taste
salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1. In a large soup pot, sauté onion & garlic in oil until onion is soft & translucent.
2. Add stock & tomatoes & bring to boil.
3. Add beans & heat through.
4. Add remainder of ingredients to taste.
5. Purée & serve.

Tip: If you have a handheld blender, it's much easier to purée the soup using that instead of putting the soup into a traditional blender or food processor.
