Why you should make this Black Bean Soup

Do not miss out on trying this one. It is:

  • easy to prepare with step-by-step pictures. (Yes I show you everything so you know exactly what to do.)
  • uses canned beans to save time, instead of dried beans which you have to soak and cook
  • made with simple ingredients that are pantry staples
  • full of flavor, but low in effort
  • filling with an amazing texture
  • hearty

Step 2: adding broth, black beans, and tomato paste.

Tips for the perfect texture 

I know the best texture for a Black Bean Soup will depend on everyone’s taste, but for me this Black Bean Soup has the best texture when I blend part of.

This leads to a great texture with a silky smooth feel that we all love and the same time it provides a great hearty texture with a little crunch from the fresh vegetables.

You can of course also blend the whole soup, or don’t blend it at all. It will lead to a different texture of course.

Step 3: Let everything simmer for a bit.

I though I would mention in the directions. There is no mention when to add the cumin or the reserved can of black bean liquid.
