Black Bean & Butternut Squash Soup

You’ll need:
1 medium whiter yellow onion chopped
3 garlic cloves minced
2 green onions chopped
1 bell pepper diced
2 cups butter nut squash diced into 1/2 inch cubes
1 -15oz can black beans drained and rinsed
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup chicken or vegetable stock
1 kup chopped kale
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 pinch allspice (if you don’t have that okay, but it adds just a little extra warmth to soup)
olive oil
1 cup brown rice cooked
1 avocado for topping (if you would like) 

In dutch oven drizzle with olive oil and heat. Add in chopped onions and bell peppers and cook until tender. Then add in garlic and green onions and cook another minutes to soften garlic. Add in the squash, black beans, seasonings, coconut milk, stock, allspice and cayenne pepper. Stir and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes stirring occasionally so it doesn’t burn. Then stir in the kale and simmer another 5-7 minutes until kale is wilted. Serve over brown rice and slice avocado over top for extra creaminess! Enjoy
