i've made a lot of things in the ninja so far, but this one is probably the best. who knew you could make soup in a blender? i mean it you really stop and think about it, it's pretty obvious right? right.
when i started putting together all the veggies, lee was like mmm, that smells good! is it almost done? i said nope, needs to go in the blender.
the blender?? he said.
see. i'm not the only one. it's so filling by itself too. i made it and had a bowl & could barely eat the rest of dinner. you have got to try this!
what you'll need:
two cans of black beans
1 medium carrot; chopped
1 whole onion; chopped
1 can of rotel
red pepper flakes
what you'll do:
start by cooking the onions and carrots in a little olive oil until tender. add in your black beans (drained), rotel (drained), and enough chicken broth to make sure it can come to a boil.
i know it's not specific. sorry, but that's pretty much what i did.
bring to a boil for about ten minutes. throw in your spices and cilantro about halfway through.
take the your ninja & ninja it to death.
boom! spicy black bean soup topped with a small spoonful of greek yogurt & a sprinkle of cheese. trust me on the greek yogurt thing. when mixed with this, it resembles sour cream except way less calories. i hope you love it as much as i do.
ever since i got this as a valentine's day present, i've used it ever since. another favorite? breakfast smoothies with fruit & spinach. i've recently learned to love almond milk and a spoonful of greek yogurt to make a it a little more creamy.
