South Beach Black Bean Stoup (Stew-Soup)

Sorry that I only have one photo of this dish for you. I'll try to remember to take another photo when I eat it again for tomorrow's lunch.

This is adapted from Nigella Lawson's How to Eat recipe book.

South Beach Black Bean Stoup

Saute in a large pan until tender:
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 red bell peppers, diced
1 medium yellow onion, diced
about 5 cloves garlic, diced
1 large leek, sliced thin

Add 2 cans of black beans, drained.

Add the following and simmer until heated through:
1 Tbsp cumin
1 Tbsp oregano
1 Tbsp crushed red pepper flakes
salt to taste

Once heated through, turn off and add:
zest and juice of one lime
1 bunch of cilantro, coarsely chopped

According to the handy-dandy recipe calculator on, this recipe makes four servings with:
290 calories
5 grams fat
0 cholesterol
16 grams fiber
16 grams protein

Wow, the lime, cilantro, cumin and pepper flakes made this amazing. So amazing, that I was eating at my desk and a coworker who had already eaten lunch stopped and said "What is that that smells so good?"
