Black Bean and Salsa Soup
Very good, incredibly simple to throw together for a quick dinner. I made a few changes: I sauteed a small white onion with a tablespoon of minced garlic in the pot with a smidge of olive oil before adding the bean mixture. I doubled the recipe and used 2 cans of beans for blending and left 2 cans whole... I like chunks! I used Tostitos salsa and didn't think it was overpowering, but definitely better the next day. Will make again and add some lightly seasoned ground turkey. Try it!

White Chili with Ground Turkey
Husband approved - and he doesn't even like beans! I added some broth to the beans while pureeing to cut down on the paste factor. Also omitted the cinnamon because it made me nervous, and a hefty teaspoon of red pepper flakes without any cayenne on hand; salt & black pepper to taste. Went a little overboard on the garlic because we love and it doesn't overpower at all. I'll probably make this once a week, it's so tasty AND filling... but relatively guilt-free! Thanks for a keeper.

Greek Garbanzo Bean Salad
One of my new favorites! An awesome salad to keep on hand for a light dinner, great for a summer potluck too! I followed the recipe exactly but threw in the whole package of cherry toms & a little extra garlic; used about 3/4 can of black olives. I peeled the cucumbers, used a mandolin to slice them at 1/4", then halved the rounds. I used a metal measuring spoon to remove the center translucent fleschy area (where the seeds are) from each of the halved slices, hoping to keep excess liquid to a minimum and increase the salad's fridge life. It was a bit tedious, but worth the effort. The salad was as good on day 4 as day 1! A keeper... thanks Kim!
