I love to cook. Especially soups! I have three soups that I really enjoy that are made mostly from scratch. I will be sharing 2 more in the weeks to come.
About a month ago I went to Panera Bread (shout out to Panera) and tried their Black Bean Soup for the first time. I enjoyed it so much that I thought I would try to make my own. A friend of mine (shout out to Dave!) actually found a recipe for a Black Bean Soup that is similar to Panera’s and sent it to me via facebook (shout out to facebook!) Here is the website Dave found the recipe on. But i posted it just for you here on my blog. http://www.recipezaar.com/Panera-Bread-Black-Bean-Soup-49737
