Black Bean Soup


Since old man Winter is not finished with us, I am looking for comfort foods that aren't full of calories and but are full of flavor.   This Black Bean Soup is hearty and has an added health benefit and is very filling! 

(A single, one cup serving of black beans contains 15 grams of fiber, over half the daily recommended and 15 grams of protein, also half the daily recommended)



Black Bean Soup


Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 medium purple onion, chopped
  • 1 orange bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 jalapeños, seeded and chopped fine
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 32 oz beef broth
  • 2 (15 oz) cans of black beans, well rinsed and drained
  • 1 (15 oz) can of diced tomatoes, with juices
  • 1 cup of sour cream, for serving
  • 1 jalapeño, thinly sliced lengthwise for garnish
Instructions
1. In a large stock pot over medium high heat, add olive oil, onion, bell pepper, jalapeño, garlic and salt
2. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes until the onions and bell peppers are soft
3. Add the beef broth, beans and tomatoes and raise temperature to high
4. As soon as the soup comes to boil, reduce temp to low, simmer, uncovered for 25 to 30 minutes and until liquid is reduced by one third
5. Serve with the sour cream and the sliced jalapeño.

  1. We love black bean soup at my house, too! I made a batch a little while ago with squash in it, which was really tasty. I have never added bell peppers to it though - I'll give that a try next time I make it!

  7. That's pretty simple. I'll try it. We eat a lot of leek soup. It's my family's favorite, although I'm not much for it. Thanks for participating in the Boost Challenge.

  9. My husband isn't a huge fan of black beans but your soup does look like it would taste wonderful! I'll have to check out your minestrone soup recipe as that sounds like something that would be more popular around here. I'm always looking for new recipes to add to our rotation.

  25. I came here from Thursday Think Tank. The Black Bean soup seems like it would be so good, except I'd have to leave out the jalapenos since our tummys won't tolerate. Probably use a little chili pepper. Hearty, inexpensive, filling--what more could we ask for. Shared it with my daughter. pinning!
