From The Runner’s World

1 T olive oil

1 yellow onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 t chili powder (I often double this)

4 c veggie broth

1 T tomato paste (blob out the rest of the can on parchment paper, freeze for future meals)

1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed, mashing 1/2 of the beans with a fork

Juice of 1 lime

1/4 t salt

1/4 t pepper
