You know what’s not pretty? Black bean and butternut squash soup. Maybe you can make it pretty if you have artistic talent and hours to make garnishes, but both of those require things like dedication and vision and I have neither. I just wanted soup.
And this soup is actually very tasty. But it ranks, aesthetically, on the same level as our last experiment with black beans, and that level is approximately sewer-high. Low enough to be underground. And similar visuals.
