    Heirloom Tomato's Note:

    I was so sad that Campbell's discontinued Black Bean Soup, so had to attempt a clone. Please note that there are no Southwestern spices in this version. Also no butter, oil, or meat. Most of the Black Bean Soup recipes one encounters these days are Southwest inspired. Not this one. Cubed avocado on top of each bowl is tasty and pretty. Or you could float a lemon slice on top.

      Drain the beans.
    3. 3
      Put them in a soup pot and add 8 cups of water.
    4. 4

    5. 5
      Bring to a boil, then turn heat to simmer.
