Reviews for Vegetarian Black Bean Soup
"My sister made this for me because I didn't know if I liked black beans or not. I do. They aren't my favorite food, but I like them enough to make this soup for myself."
"I have made this soup several times and love it. However, I added more hot sauce, a small can of black olives, and a small can of sliced mushrooms. I think it would be good with some fresh portabello mushrooms instead."
"I would add more hot sauce and more green onion. Good soup!"
"Tastey but not memorable."
"You can substitute sweet potato for the regular potato with equally tasty results."
