39
(from this yummy cookbook)
oh my GOODNESS this soup was incredible! 
next time i make it i'm going to double it & freeze some!
so simple & so delicious!

whatcha need:
*1 lbs dry black beans (i used canned)
*4 c veggie broth
*1 c leek, chopped
*1 c fennel, chopped
*1 sweet onion, chopped
*1 yellow onion, chopped
*1 red onion, chopped
*1 c cilantro, chopped (we don't like cilantro so i omitted it)
*1 c scallions, chopped
*1/2 tsp, thyme
*1 Tbs paprika
*sea salt & ground black pepper to taste
*3 bay leaves

how ya make it:
>soak beans in warm water overnight. drain & rinse the beans, & transfer them to a large pot w veggie broth & 2 cups cold, salted water. bring to a boil. (if u use canned beans just add the broth & beans after you sauté the veggies.)
>while the beans are cooking, chop leek, fennel, onions, cilantro, & scallions. set aside 1/4 c red onion for garnishing. 
>saute leek, fennel, onions, cilantro, scallions, thyme, & paprika for 1 min. then season w salt & pepper to taste.
>add bay leaves & all the other ingredients to boiling beans & simmer, covered, for about 20-30 mins.
>remove bay leaves before serving. garnish w red onion.
