Black Bean Soup

Black Bean Soup
3 Tbs olive oil
4 to 6 cloves garlic
1/2 lg onion
2 lg carrots
2 stalks celery
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 bay leaves
1 cup dried black beans (soaked, cooked and drained)
or
2 cans drained black beans
2 cups water
Saute the garlic and onion in the oil.
Add the other ingredients and let boil for 10 minutes
or until consistancy is right for you.
Add sea salt to taste after it has been reduced.
It was so good even Cyan ate it. It was also just enough for 2 adults or 1 adult and two kids, so double if you have more. I served this with Provalone cheese broiled on tiny french loaves and a spinich salad with italian dressing.
