Black Bean and Rice Soup

Along with Power Chicken I also prepped this delicious soup this week.  My 4 year old gobbled it up and the 1.5 year old loved the beans! Next time I make this, I'm going to double up the spices and add a wee bit of salt after it's done slow cooking.  Either way, this is another soup that is just perfect for the cool weather.  Super easy, super delicious and simple to portion out.  I got 8 servings out of this recipe.
