Black bean soup for a blustery day.

It got very cold yesterday, and warmed up a smidge today. Still good weather for soup! My crock pot is wunderbar. It makes me so happeh! So, on to the recipe:

Black bean soup

2 cups dry black beans
1 large onion, diced
5 or more cloves of garlic, minced/pressed
1 diced green bell pepper
1 tablespoon cumin
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cups orange juice (I know, I know... trust me)
black pepper and cayenne to taste

Soak your black beans overnight. Rinse and put in crock pot with 4 cups of water.
Add all other ingredients and simmer on high for 6+ hours. Adjust flavors as you see fit. :)
