Black Bean Soup with Brown Rice and Cotija Cheese
About 100 years ago (or so it seems), there was a fancy-dancy restaurant in Edmonton called The Carvery. Basically, it was a steak house, but very upscale. Anyone dining there could be assured of envious oooh and ahs from co-workers and friends. Aside from the impeccable service, I will always remember certain dishes I was fortunate to taste there.
Escargots en Brioche, Peppercorn-encrusted Filet Mignon, but the real stand out item was their Black Bean Soup. Honestly, it seemed the whole city was talking about it, and many, including myself were clamouring for the recipe! I was fortunate to have a friend with sharp eyes who found it in one of the food columns of the Edmonton Journal.
That was over 20 years ago, and I am still making this soup! (with a couple of tweaks, of course.)
