Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a stockpot over medium-high heat. Saute celery, carrots, and onion in the hot oil until onion is transparent, 5 to 7 minutes. Toss in garlic and ginger. Pour in beans and water. Add salsa, cumin, chili powder, and oregano. Bring to a boil; continue to boil for 25 to 35 minutes.

  • Remove from heat and let cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Transfer in batches to an electric blender or food processor and blend to desired consistency.

  • Transfer soup back into the pot and heat through over medium heat, 3 to 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use any stock of your choice instead of water, and 1 tablespoon tomato paste instead of salsa, if preferred.

4/26/20 - first attempt at black bean soup, flavor was good and this smells amazing. But the texture is off - this didn't puree down to a smooth soup at all, it's very grainy. I did add more liquid and it still didn't smooth out. The taste is great, but I definitely wouldn't share this batch with anyone else! I will try again - the one thing I didn't do was to puree it right after cooking, I ran out of time and pureed it the next day after it was refrigerated. The other thing I did was used dried beans, soaked overnight, instead of canned. I will try again when I have time! Read More

Very good and super easy to make. Luckily these are ingredients I always have on hand. The only thing I added was salt and pepper. Will make again. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
