Comfort bean and rice soup.

This black bean and rice soup recipe is so filling and warm, it is perfect for these cold winter days. Plus, as with all my recipes, it is so easy and cheap to make. An added bonus with this soup recipe is it can feed a whole family...or if there are only two of you, like Dave and I, it will last for days. We never get sick of it either. Add some spice in your bowl the next day to mix it up a bit...

  1. Fantastic blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!
