You want to eat in 15 minutes and nothing's prepared. What's your favorite thing to whip up?

Here's mine.

Black bean soup

finely chop five or six cloves of garlic
finely chop 2 scallions
cut up a slice of bacon into small pieces

Saute the bacon and garlic in a soup pot until just before the garlic begins to brown

Add a large can of black beans, stir until hot
Add a few cups of chicken broth

Blend with an immersion blender until fairly smooth, and add more broth until you get it to the consistency you want.

Season with salt and pepper

Serve topped with creme fraiche/sour cream and the scallions
