For someone looking for a good black bean soup: this is taken (with slight
modifications) from ...um... i think the moosewood cookbook, without
permission. It's very thick and a bit spicey.

Wash the beans and soak, them , covered, for 4 hours. Drain and add water
or stock. Add salt. Bring to a boil and then simmer, covered, for 1 1/2

Sautee the vegetables and garlic. Add cumin and corriander. Cook until
vegetables are soft, adding water if needed. Add veggies to cooking beans.

About 10 minutes before beans are ready add the oranges, orange and lemon
juice, sherry, black and red pepper.

Stir, cover, cook 10 more minutes. Taste and make adjustments.
