“Doctored up” canned black bean soup for lunch

For lunch today I didn’t want to spend too much time or effort and I am low on ripe fruit so I decided to have a can of soup.

Health Valley organic no salt added black bean soup.  By itself, it lacks the flavor I crave so I add the following ingredients while I am heating it up on the stove:

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp minced onion

1/2 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp coconut aminos

fresh cilantro

I then top it with one chopped avocado.

My grandmother used the phrase “doctoring it up” to describe the process of adding fresh ingredients to a store-bought convenience food to make it healthier and to taste more homemade.
