Supreme Black Bean Soup Recipe

Pick over and wash 1 pound of black (or turtle) beans, soak them overnight, and then cook the legumes about 1 1/2 hours (until they're soft but not mushy). Add 1 medium-sized carrot, cut into thin strips 1 inch long; 2 finely chopped medium-sized onions; 2 well-chopped stalks of celery; 2 minced cloves of garlic; about 1 1/2 cups of tomato puree; 1 teaspoon of sweet basil and about 1 tablespoon of vegetable salt (Vegesal is one available brand). Allow the soup to simmer until the vegetables lose most of their crunch. If the beans haven't broken up and the soup seems thin, add 1 tablespoon of arrowroot starch — stirred into a little water — to thicken it. Serve with a slice or two of fresh lime (lemon will do in a pinch).
