Easy & Healthy Black Bean Soup

blackbeansoup.JPG

With a stovetop and an immersion blender this soup comes together in less than 10 minutes… well maybe 15 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 Onion- diced
  • Oil to sauté the onion
  • 1 Can of black beans
  • Water
  • Salt & pepper to taste (or curry powder if you are really adventurous!)
  • Cheese to garnish (optional)

Directions:

Dice and sauté the onion in a small stock pot. When the onions are translucent and starting to caramelize add the can of black beans- liquid included! Fill the can with water and add to the pot. Use your immersion blender to blend the beans and onions together. Bring the soup to a simmer then serve! Garnish with some shredded cheese!

*Cheese Tip… Since cheese is a kosher sensitive ingredient, I keep a bag or two of shredded cheese in the freezer at home. That way whenever I come by, I don’t have to worry about whether or not I have some. Just because you are going home, doesn’t mean you have to have boring food!

  1. Just tried this. Added salt, pepper, garlic (several fresh cloves crushed at saute stage) paprika and curry. Yum! Although next time I think I’ll add less water so it is thicker.
