I saw this soup on the cover of a magazine at the grocery store last year, and it was just screaming “Spring!” to me. Simple enough to re-create, I thought, and I was definitely not disappointed. This soup is fast, fast, fast and easy. Perfect for a busy weeknight when you wish the weather weren’t so chilly. I rely on pre-made chicken broth, tortellini and organic turkey meatballs to speed things up, but if you love to make any of those items from scratch, I will certainly not stand in your way. A homemade meatball would be a stellar addition to this soup.
Spring evenings are possibly my favorite times to eat soup. You can feel the warm weather knocking at your door, but by dinner there’s still a little chill in the air. Too cold for salad or a burger, there’s nothing better at this dinner-moment than cozying up to a warm bowl of soup. This Black Bean Soup for One can support all of your favorite Mexican-style toppings– and for that reason alone it has earned my love! It’s also delicious plain, so use what you have. The other huge bonus to this recipe is that it’s so very convenient and quick to put together.
