Warm and easy black bean soup (recipe)

Jan. 12, 2016

warm and easy black bean soup

Warm up this winter with a bowl of black bean and corn soup that’s both hearty and healthy. Low in fat, high in fiber and full of flavor, this easy-to-make recipe takes just minutes to prepare in the morning for a delicious dinner by evening. Best of all, this dish is packed with colorful vegetables, which offer powerful antioxidants needed to protect the immune system.

Lynne’ Schatzlein, RD, a Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center dietitian, recommends pairing this low-calorie soup with a healthy sandwich or salad. To reduce sodium, use canned corn, tomatoes and black beans that contain no added salt.
