What do you get when you throw together half a bag of frozen edamame beans, some leftover tomatoes, a can of corn, and some balsamic vinegar?! A tasty new dish for you and for baby!! I'll admit it, this recipe was an experiment...gone good (thank goodness!). I've roasted tomatoes in the oven before and they turned out delicious so I figured I couldn't go wrong with this one....more

When I crushed the spice, this citrus-y smell perfumed my kitchen that was so wonderful. I am definitely looking for more recipes with coriander in them to make in the future....more
I love cooking with my friend Vikki!

I didn't need any more encouragement to make this again as a vegan soup, perfect for Meatless Monday on my own blog. With all the flavors like garlic, cumin, oregano, cilantro, and green Tabasco sauce, I think this is the best black bean soup I've ever made, high praise from someone who loves black beans like I do.
