Easy (and good!) Black Bean Soup

By 6:00 AM , ,

I was looking for something different to do with black beans. It's easy to just open the can and simmer adding a piece of bacon, hot sauce and be done with it. But that gets old.

I found this recipe on Recipe Zaar.

Using the Cuisinart hand held blender I got from The Sister-in-Law for Christmas, I made this soup that only takes about 20 minutes, but tasted like it took a lot longer.

1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Small Onion, chopped
1 Tbsp of Cumin
2 Tbsp Garlic
1 Tbsp Butter
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1 Can of Black Beans (1/2 reserved)
1 Cup of Chicken Broth/Stock

Saute chopped onions in olive until translucent. Add Cumin and stir for 30 second. Add in garlic, stir and let flavors come together for one minute. Add the butter and stir.

Season with Salt, Pepper and and stir to combine.

Add 1/2 of Black Beans and Chicken Stock and bring to a simmer.

Let simmer for 5-10 minutes, until beans are tender.

Use a handheld blender, or transfer mixture to a food processor and pulse just until beans start to break up, but before mixture gets watery.

Combine the mixture with the remaining black beans and let mixture simmer for another 5 minutes or so.

Garnish with sour cream, red onions or sriracha.

  1. This recipe was simple and delish! I will probably double it next time, so I can have some to freeze.
