Black Bean Soup
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Black Bean Soup was the first meal Wallis served her future husband when he was Prince of Wales...and the rest is history!
2 cups black beans, washed and drained but not soaked
Combine beans, broth, bay leaf, paprika, juice and zest of lemon, carrots, onion, garlic, salt and pepper in heavy bottomed stock pot. Bring to boil. Reduce to simmer. Simmer for 2-3 hours, covered, or until beans are tender, adding more water and seasonings, as desired. (Or, use pressure cooker and cook for about 35-40 minutes under medium pressure.) Remove bay leaf. Stir in the sherry and serve in flat soup plates. Dollop with a little olive oil and sprinkle with chives just before serving.
