What you do: 

* If you like a thicker soup (like me), strain the beans before adding.
Take one can of black beans and puree in food processor…set aside’
In large pot, sauté onion, cumin, cilantro, lime juice, and sugar in oil until onion is clear.
Add all beans and coconut milk.
Bring to a boil, the simmer on low for at least 20 minutes.

Pretty simple to make. I'm sick and wanted something easy to make with the ingredients in my home. I like the tastes and I didn't have cilantro so I used Italian seasoning and added lots of cayenne pepper to get rid of my sickness. I also added less than a half cup of ditalini pasta.
