Imitation is the highest form of flattery

Thanks to my fellow bloggers for this dinner. First up is Stormy Black Bean Soup from Fatfree Vegan. Second are these yummy Apple Cheddar Muffins from Albion Cooks. This dinner was a home run. We loved the soup and the muffins. The black beans in the soup of course are an excellent source of fiber known to lower cholesterol. Black beans also help to prevent cancer and lower your heart attack risk. Good news for vegans and vegetarians... In addition to providing slow burning complex carbohydrates, black beans can increase your energy by helping to replenish your iron stores. Although the tannins in black beans may block absorption of some of the iron they contain, a cup of black beans contains so much iron--20.1% of the daily value for this important mineral--that you will still benefit.

    The Black Bean soup looks fab! And everything looks even better in a square bowl (I know I've told you that before...I just felt like repeating myself LOL)
