1 can mixed vegetables (.75)
1 can black beans, rinsed (.50)
1 can of vegetable or chicken broth or 1.5 cups of homemade broth(.50)

Dump everything into pot, except black beans need to be drained. Heat thru. Ill sometimes add some garlic too. I usually serve this with PB& J's.
This is actually on the menu for this wk.
We made this recipe tonight but just doubled everything...Not one last drop was left and my husband said it was the BEST soup he has had in years...

We served it with a little sprinkle of cheese and toasted wheat bread...YUM!
