Black Bean Soup

January/February 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4 (492 votes)

This is a zippy Southwestern-flavored black bean soup. We make it with canned beans so it comes together in minutes. If you have leftovers, pack them up in individual serving containers for lunch the next day.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This recipe is an excellent jumping off point for you to embellish if you're in the mood, or it's great just as it is. Normally, I add one crushed clove of garlic, substitute chicken broth for the water and add salt only at the end since...

Great quick meal for vegetarians!

I would use vegetable broth instead of water, no sour cream, and would absolutely use cilantro (so good for you!!).

Easy, protein, vegetarian

Bland

This was so bland, I'm sorry. I had to add salsa, way more salt, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, black beans, and it still tasted nothing like tortilla soup. A total waste.

Great healthy soup

I didn't use the canola oil as onions make their own liquid. I added diced carrots and garlic as well as celery to the sauté. 1 can of black beans and I didn't purée any of it. I made a cilantro and lime rice and put it over it. Don't leave the lime out in the end...it makes the soup, awesome.

A quick put together meal for nights you didn't think ahead.

I used chicken broth, Rotel tomatoes instead of salsa, 1 can of refried black beans so I didn't need to puree, added ground turkey, and served over cilantro and lime rice. Very yummy and hearty!

Added some minced carrots when sautéing the onion. Substituted 2 cups of chicken stock for some of the water What a great soup
