Black Bean Soup

· 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
· 1 large onion
· 2 cloves garlic
· 4 cups broccoli, chopped coarse
· 3 cups vegetable stock/bouillon
· 4 cups potato, diced
· 1 cup or one small can black beans, drained
· salt and pepper to taste
· an ounce or so of wine or sherry to taste

Heat oil over medium heat, sauté onions and garlic.

Add broccoli, stock, and potatoes and cook 20 minutes covered.

Process half of the soup in a food processor until pureed. Return to soup remaining in pot and season. This can be served with grated cheese on top. I've added some spirits to it from time to time to give it an extra zing.

Again, a recipe that can be either vegetarian or not. Goes well with a foccacia recipe that I’ve included in this forum.

Food memory: I was project manager an this new kid had just joined the team, moved in from the wet coast and I knew how hard it was to make connections. We invited him and his family over for supper, and his wife insisted on bringing something, but "freaked" (his words) when she found out we were vegetarian. Not sure where she got this recipe, but it has since become a staple in her family and one we trot out now and again - it's easy and good, particularly on fall days after outdoor activities!

Broccoli, potatoes, and black beans are some of my favorite things, though I don't usually have them together. I can't wait to make this!

This sounds delicious.

What would be a good substitute for the sherry/wine?

It's not really needed, just adds a certain something.
