Introduction

This simple, hearty soup is inspired by the traditional bean & rice dishes served worldwide, and bean bacon soup, which is popular, but not acceptable for diets that don't include pork or red meat. You can substitute rice for barley or other whole grains, but it should be pre-cooked, and the beans should be canned, not dried.
You can play around a little with the ingredients, like leaving the turkey out for a vegan option.

Ingredients

    Black beans, 3 cup
    *White Rice, medium grain, 1 cup
    Onions, raw, 1/2 cup, chopped
    Salsa, 1/3 cup
    Turkey breast meat, 3 slices, chopped

Directions

~1 cup of cooked rice
a can of black beans (slightly drained)
1-2 cloves of garlic
~1/3 cup of chopped onion
~1/3 cup of salsa
season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a small to medium saucepan, add ingredients with about ~3-4 cups of water

Simply let simmer on medium heat for about a 15 minutes to a half hour. The longer, the better the flavor, and the more the beans will cook, and the fibers will break down.
