Spicy Bean Soup with Wild Rice

Nothing says comfort food on a cold rainy night like a hot, bubbly soup.  Recently I discovered this spicy bean soup with wild rice recipe on Sparkpeople.  I tweaked it a little and I love it!! You can modify the spices to suit your own tastes, but I think the cumin and red pepper flakes give it just the right amount of kick.

Ingredients

1/2 cup Great Northern beans

1/2 large onion, sliced

1 clove garlic, minced

2 cups water

1/2 cup wild rice

1 tsp. Italian seasoning

1/2 tsp. cumin

1/2 tsp. cloves

1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes

1 oz. shredded Mozzarella cheese

Directions

Saute’ onions and garlic in 1 Tbsp. oil, until translucent.

Add 2 cups water, beans, rice and spices.  Simmer for 2 hours.

Top with Mozzarella cheese and serve (makes 3-4 servings).
