Black Bean & Rice Soup

This is my creation - I didn't get the meat out in time for the other recipe I had planned to try. It was a happy coincidence. :)

2 Tb. olive oil
2 med. carrots, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 med. onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 qt. (4 c.) vegetable, chicken, or beef stock
2 cans black beans
1 can tomatoes, undrained
1 c. rice (I like a rice medley that has some seasoning already in it)
2 tsp. chili powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cumin

Saute veggies in olive oil until slightly tender. Combine remaining ingredients and cook until rice is done (time will depend on what kind of rice you use). Enjoy! Makes 6 servings
