Ingredients

    10 sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
    1 cup boiling water

    1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion
    3 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
    1 jalapeno chile, minced, or 1/4 tsp cayenne
    2 TBSP vegetable oil
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1/3 cup water
    3 cups undrained canned tomatoes (28-ounce can) Buy pre-diced to save time

    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    additional water or tomato juice

    yogurt or sour cream (optional)

Directions

In a small bowl, cover the sun-dried tomatoes with the boiling water and set aside.

In s aoupe pot, saute the onions, garlic, and chile or cayenne in the oil for about 5 minute, stirring frequently, until the onions are translucent. Add the cumin, 1/3 cup water, and the juice from the tomatoes.

Cover and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Add the black beans and their liquid, and continue to simmer, stirring occassionally to prevent sticking.

Drain and chop the softened sun-dried tomatoes. Add them to the soup and cook for 5 to 10 minutes longer, until the onions are tender. Stir in the cilantro and remove the soup from the heat. Puree 1/2 of the soup in a blender or food processor and return it to the pot. If the soup is too thick, add some water or tomato juice. Reheat gently.

Serve each bowl of soup with a dollop of yogurt or sour cream.

  • There's a missing sentence. After "Add the cumin, 1/3 cup water, and the juice from the tomatoes." the next sentence should read, "Break up the tomatoes by squeezing them into the soup pt, or chop them coarsely right in the can and add them to the pot." - 11/18/14
