I find myself obsessed with black beans lately.. I actually find myself obsessed with all differnt kinds of beans.. I think they make great side dishes or sometimes I eat them as my dinner. So for todays edition of Tasty Tuesday I bring to you
BLACK BEAN & CORN SOUP

1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 carrots, chopped

1 (8.75 ounce) can whole kernel corn
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

i love beans. but i don't eat them because of the consequences, which i have come to learn, are worst than the pleasure of eating beans. so i am bean-free unless ofcourse you're talking about american baked beans. I canNOT say no to those. i'll stay home for a few days after that though, and suffer the consequences alone. hehe
