This recipe has long been one of my favorites. It is incredibly simple, quick, healthy, and delicious – what more can you ask for? I love to make this when I get home from a long, busy day because it is so quick and easy but still tastes great. It is even great as a leftover. I think the garnish really adds something special to this soup, so I wouldn’t recommend skipping it.

2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1½ cups vegetable broth
