  • 1 stalk celery, chopped

  • 2 carrots, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 2 teaspoons ground chipotley powder

  • 1 can (15 oz) Red enchilada sauce

  • 6 cups cooked black beans

  • 3 cups water or vegetable stock (adjust for desired thickness)

  • 1 cup diced tomatoes

  • 2 tablespoons mirin

  • 1 tablespoon tamari

  • Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish.

  1. Place kombu in bowl with enough warm water to cover and soak 10 minutes or until soft. Drain, mince kombu and set aside.

  2. In large pot over medium heat, sauté garlic and onion in oil 3 minutes. Add celery, carrots, cumin, chipotley, cayenne and salt. Sauté 8 minutes or until carrots are tender.
