well, I just relized that I don't have all the ingredients for this soup so here is my plan for today and I will let you all know how it went! lol
(I never follow a recipe well anyway!)

1lb black beans soaked overnight
8c water
1/2 yellow onion grated in, garlic cloves grated in as well...
adding all herbs(No salt)

I will cook for a while and see how it goes then add a couple cubes veggie boullion and a can of diced tomatoes ith green chilis-we'll see if at that point we really need the extra salt(I doubt it!)

I don't have a bell pepper but will probably add some chopped fresh spinach in toward the end to add a little color or maybe chopped zuchinni- who knows! lol

I remember having a hard time getting beans to soften when salt or tomatoes was added early in cooking which is why I am waiting...dont knwo if that is normal or not though!
