Two Bean Soup by Kitchen Basic Vegetable Stock

Bad Photo here---but I was in a real hurry This makes 3 servings so I really should double it. It is nice and thick and is to make--the cooking takes time but not the prep, but need to soak beans the night before. (Kitchen Basic has an online recipe site here and their home page is at

1 cup black beans, soaked overnight
1 cup white navy beans, soaked overnight
4 cups of Kitchen Basic vegetable stock
2 garlic cloves minced
3 Tbs of balsamic vinegar
2 jalapeno peppers seeded and chopped or for less hot use 1/2 red pepper chopped
6 scallions, chopped (I only had onions)
juice 1/2 lime
1/8 cup olive oil (I omitted to lesson fat)
1/8 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (my hubby doesn't like cilantro--I do)

Drain and mix and rinse beans. Combine beans, stock and garlic in saucepan. Bring
to boil. Cover and simmer until soft, about 90 minutes (mine took more because I turned my heat to low). Puree mixture in food processor or with stick mixer (I just mashed mine with a masher since I like some whole beans). Return to saucepan and add remaining ingredients. Reheat gently. Serve--if you eat dairy you can garnish with sour cream.
