Black Bean Soup Recipe

Serves 6 in 45 minutes!


  • 2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 1 bell pepper, diced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 teaspoons cumin

  • 1 teaspoon coriander

  • 1 teaspoon oregano

  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth

  • 1 can fire roasted, diced tomatoes

  • 2 bay leaves

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish

  • Sliced avocado, for garnish

  • Sour cream, for garnish

  • Lime slices, for garnish

  • Finely diced red onion, for garnish

The Culinary Journey:

  1. Start by sautéing the onion and bell pepper in olive oil in a large pot over medium low heat until they get soft, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add the garlic and dry spices, stirring constantly and toasting them for just one minute.

  3. Add the bay leaves, black beans, diced tomatoes, and stock, bring to a boil and then lower heat to as low as your lowest burner can go; simmer at least 30 minutes.

  4. Once the soup has simmered and the beans have broken down a bit and created a thick soup, season with salt and pepper to your taste.

  5. Ladle your Black Bean Soup into bowls, garnishing each serving with a sprinkle of fresh cilantro, sour cream, avocado, diced onions, and a generous squeeze of lime juice.

Black Bean Soup is a delectable combination of delicious and healthy. It can be made this way, which is vegetarian, or you can add some smoked sausage to amp up the protein! Serve this over rice to stretch the meal further and make it even more filling!

The black beans provide a rich source of protein and dietary fiber, making this soup a satisfying and nourishing option. The cumin and spices add a burst of warm, earthy flavors, while the fresh cilantro and lime juice offer a zesty, vibrant finish.

With the nutrient-packed ingredients and aromatic spices, this soup is not just a culinary delight but also a wholesome choice to keep your body fortified during the winter months. It's a heartwarming bowl of goodness that will take the chill out of any winter day and keep you coming back for more. So, let's embrace the winter's warmth with a bowl of Black Bean Soup!
