Vegan Black Bean Soup
I think this is a great base recipe, but one I'll have to amend slightly in the future. My issue is with the amount of spices. Don't get me wrong, I love some chili powder and cumin as much as the next person, but I found it a bit overpowering. It was very hard to taste any individual ingredients! Next time I think I'll halve (at least) the powdered spices and opt for some finely minced habanero or jalapeno instead. Or, and call me crazy here, a little salt? Granted, I used dried beans as opposed to canned, so I avoided that sodium, but I was still rather surprised to see a soup without any salt at all. Hence the over-reliance on powdered spices for flavoring. I think it would be just as effective to get a little bit of the spice flavor in there while still accentuating the natural flavor of the beans, onion, corn, and tomatoes. Just my two cents.
