Black Bean Soup

Black bean soup needs a lot of time before you can eat it. But, after all the time you will spend for cooking this recipe, I am sure you will agree with me that it is worth it. This is a very tasty soup. What is good with this recipe is you can eat it alone and you will be full. Actually, we ate this for our dinner and the left over is still so good that we still eat it the following day.

1lb black bean (soak overnight)
1 medium size onion (diced)
1 medium size bell pepper (diced)
1lb smoked pork hocks
black pepper
bay leaves
1tsp cooking oil
powdered garlic
salt (to taste)

Soak the black beans overnight. Throw half of the water ( if there is a lot left). Put in the big casserole. Sautee onion for a minute. Add bell pepper. Seasoned with black pepper, powdered garlic and salt. Add the sautee'd bell pepper to the soaked black beans. Add pork hocks and bay leaves. Bring to boil. Cook slow for 4 hours. Mix it once in a while and add water if necessary.
