Black Bean Soup

This is a super easy recipe I adapted from an even simpler one that I found online.  It was so simple in fact, I doubted it, but with a few minor adjustments its still easy, delicious and fast.

  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable stock

  • 2 strips bacon
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 celery stalk chopped
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
