Black Bean Plantain Soup.

Plantains are without a doubt very yummy. But often I struggle with what to do with them when I buy them. This soup was one of those "I really need to use this  *insert food item here* so let's just make some soup out of it" recipes. But hey, the simplest recipes are sometimes the best, am I right?!

            Black Bean Plantain Soup. 

Black Bean Plantain Soup; Vegan, Gluten-free. Serves one. 

1. 3/4 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
2. 4 oz. plantain, sliced and chopped
3. 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
4. 1/4 tsp cinnamon
5. Dash of cumin
6. 2 tsp minced ginger, minced
7. 3 cups fresh spinach leaves
