A thick, textured black bean soup that’s slowly simmered to be PACKED full of flavour!
Just popping in for a quick hello and a delicious soup today! I’ve been a bit soup mad lately, I think it’s the time of year. We’re still “officially” on holiday until Monday, so I’m looking forward to making my 2017 plan a reality very soon!
We had our first snow this week, which while pretty, has had us stuck inside a lot of the time. It’s been nice to just be at home and not worry about doing much for a couple of weeks though, I think we really needed this “off” time. As I write this, we’re making a few little updates to the site to hopefully make it nicer for you all!
I’ve always been obsessed with black beans, and a hearty black bean soup is absolutely PERFECT at this time of year! This is a slow and steady recipe, you can’t rush it, and you won’t regret using dried black beans, although if you really want to save time and use canned you can. The slow simmer helps to deepen the flavour of the beans, the pepper, onion garlic and spices, resulting in the most creamy, earthy black bean soup.
Top it off with all your favourite toppings (suggestions below… but feel free to customise as MUCH as you like) and enjoy!
