Spicy Vegan Black Bean Soup


There's nothing better than a warming bowl of your favorite soup on a cold, dreary night. Not the kind of soup from a can, but the easy homemade kind that's comforting and good for the soul, with enough leftovers for days. Hello, Spicy Vegan Black Bean Soup. You have been a favorite of mine since um, forever? The first bowl of Black Bean Soup I ever had was from Panera, way back in high school during my senior year. How I remember that? I'm not sure ha. I wasn't vegan then but lightly dabbled with the vegetarian thing on and off
