Our family loves black beans, so I am always looking for new ways to cook them. I came up with this recipe after trying to find a way to use up some leftover fresh sage. My partner absolutely loves the result!

  • Stir black beans, chicken stock, and sage leaves with the onion mixture; add just enough water to the saucepan to cover the beans completely. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the beans are soft, about 15 minutes. Remove and discard sage leaves.

  • Pour soup into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid in place; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth. Return soup to saucepan and place over low heat.

  • Stir 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese and butter into the soup; cook and stir until melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and stir cream into the soup until smooth. Garnish with green onion and grated Parmesan cheese.

Cook's Notes:

You can add the rind from your fresh Parmesan cheese to the soup when you add the sage leaves for a more-intense Parmesan flavor. Remove and discard along with the sage.
