  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 1 green bell pepper, diced

  • 2 stalks celery, diced

  • 1 large carrot, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 teaspoon cumin


  1. Heat olive oil in a stockpot over medium-high heat; saute onion, green bell pepper, celery, carrot, and garlic until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add black beans, diced tomatoes, water, and cumin to onion mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until flavors have combined, at least 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

For extra flavor, you can mix in vegetable bouillon with the water before cooking. You can also add other veggies such as mushrooms or corn for a heartier soup.

If you rinse the black beans, add 1 teaspoon salt to the soup.
