Black Bean Soup

I made this with all canned veggie because I had them in the house. You could easily do it with dried beans and frozen or fresh corn.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion
1 cup shopped carrots
1 cup chopped celery
2 cloves of garlic-minced
2-3 teaspoons of cumin
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 cans low sodium chicken stock
2 cans black beans
1 can corn
1 can diced tomatoes

sauté veggies in olive oil until onions and garlic are translucent
add spices and mix cook spices and veggies (like you would a curry) for a few minutes
add black beans, corn, and tomatoes, mix together
add stock
bring to a rolling boil and then lower temp to simmer for an hour or so.

It's really really good the next day and I've found that it's salty enough without adding salt to it.
