    3       c            Black beans -- sorted and rins
    6       c            Water
    7       c            [stock]
    1       cn           Tomatoes -- including liquid
                         Cut in pieces
    2       c            Chopped celery
    1                    Carrot -- large chopped
    1                    Onion -- large chopped
    4                    Garlic cloves -- large min
    2                    Bay leaves
    1       t            Basil
    1       t            Oregano
      1/2   ts           Marjoram
    1 1/2   tb           Lemon juice
    5 1/2   tb           Sherry
 
   Soak the black beans in the 6 cups of water overnight
   in a large pot. Drain the soaking water and refill
   soup pot with the 7 cups of ff chicken broth (you can
   also use vegetable broth) the add and cook for 2-2 1/2
   hours until beans  are soft the tomatoes, celery,
   carrot, onion, garlic, bay leaves, oregano, basil,
   marjoram then add the lemon juice, sherry and apple
   cider vinegar to taste for a sharper flavor. Salt &
   pepper to taste. Now I have not tried this yet but I
   think that I would add the tomatoes after the beans
   were soft. Then remove the bay leaves and blend soup
   in food processor or blender. Return to soup pot and
   reheat and serve garnishing each bowl with 1/2- 1 T of
   nonfat sour cream & 1/2 teaspoon chives or green onion
   tops. Nutrition (per serving): 226 calories, Total Fat
