Black Bean Soup

My coworked, Sara, introduced me to this amazing recipe, which I've tweaked a little bit. This has become a staple in our house, with my 4 year old requesting it at least once a week. So, I bought a huge case of black beans at Costco and loaded up on chicken stock, since this recipe is SO easy, and SO inexpensive:


4 Tbsp. Olive Oil

1 medium onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon ground cumin

3 - 15 ounce cans black beans, inlcluding liquid

1 - 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes in juice (or 2 medium tomatoes)

2 cups chicken or veggie broth

2 teaspoons lime juice

1 small bunch minced cilantro


Saute onion in olive oil over medium high heat for 5 minutes, add the garlic and continue for another 5 mintues

Stir in cumin and cook for another minutes

Add beans, tomatoes & juices, and broth.

Bring soup to a boil.

Cover, reduce heat to medium low, and simmer for 10 minutes

Using an immersion blender, puree about 1/3 of the soup, or remove about 1/3 of the soup to blender/food processor to puree and then return to the pot.

Stir in lime juice and cilantro, serve with chips, rice, etc.
