An easy recipe for black bean soup

I'm short on time today, so I'll tell you what I made for lunch. I modified this from a recipe from the RealAge cookbook.

Easy Black Bean Soup
serves 4
calories - approximately 250 nutrient packed, fiber rich little nuggets of energy per serving.

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2+ cloves of garlic, chopped
cumin and coriander to taste (I used about a teaspoon each)
1 big can of tomatoes, chopped or whole, undrained
1 box of chicken broth (or veggie broth)
2 carrots, chopped
2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 tub of fresh salsa or 1 small jar of cooked salsa

Heat oil, cook onion for a couple of minutes. Add garlic and spices and cook 1 more minute.

Add the tomatoes and chicken broth, bring to a boil, add carrots, beans, and salsa. Bring down to a simmer, let cook for 15+ minutes or to desired consistency.

Serve with corn tortillas, whole grain crusty rolls, or over baked tortilla chips.
