EwE - Roasted Tomato and Black Bean Soup with Avocado Mango Salad - Soup and Salad

For Eating with Ellie this week, Kayte chose the theme of Soups and Salad.  I took the theme quite literally and made Ellie's Roasted Tomato and Black Bean Soup with Avocado Mango Salad, a recipe from So Easy.  

The soup was hearty and spicy. The hardest part about making it was blending it smooth, as it kept popping out of the top of my food processor between the lid and the barrel.

The salad added a lovely cooling side with a great flavour combination.

All in all, I enjoyed this dish, which is surprising giving my past indifference to both soup and salad. (Kayte, did you choose this theme to encourage me to  face my food nemeses??).

To see what everyone else made this week, visit the LYL section of the EwE website.

This looks delicious! Perfect for our Spring weather with wholesome flavours along with a summery salad. I love black beans and have never thought to combine them in a soup with roasted tomatoes. This is a winner 8)

Oh, a soup or a salad is my go to meal when I am poorly, otherwise I am likely to just eat toast!! The roasted tomatoes sound delicious.

I hardly ever make pureed soups (laziness!) but this one looks really good, and perfect for our autumn weather.
