Black Bean Soup

Just make this and eat me on this one!

10 cups of water
1&1/2 cups dry black beans
3T oil
1 carrot grated
1 onion chopped
1 potato grated
1 bay leaf
1t oregano
1/4 t savory(Do not omit this spice)
2t salt
1/2 t pepper
Juice of 2 lemons
Wash beans and pick out debris. Beans need to be cooked(Duh) I have used a pressure cooker if speed is of the essence, but I prefer my slowcooker. Once beans are cooked add 1T of oil.

Chop and grate onion, carrot and potato. Heat remaining oil in medium to large frying pan. Add onion first until soft, then add carrot and potato. Stir until heated through. Add vegetables to soup. Add seasonings. let simmer for about 15 minutes. Pour in lemon juice, stir and enjoy.
