Black Bean Soup

With the first day of Fall fast approaching, I can't help but to be excited! Fall is my favorite of the 4 seasons! Cooler temps, apple/pumpkin picking, football, Halloween and of course Thanksgiving are just some of the reasons I love the Fall.

I also enjoy this time of year because, I can cook some of my favorite comfort food recipes that, are fitting with the dropping temperatures.

One of which is black bean soup. It's a favorite in my home. It's a simple and quick meal for my family. Easy to make and nutritious. I took the recipe off the back of the Goya Black Bean can and made some provisions. Check it out!

Black Bean Soup


3 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped

1 tablespoon ground cumin

2 -3 cloves garlic

2 (14 1/2ounce) cans black beans

2 cups chicken broth or 2 cups vegetable broth

salt and pepper

1 small red onion, chopped fine

1⁄4 cup cilantro or spinach, coarsely chopped or finely chopped (whatever you prefer)


Sauté onion in olive oil. When onion becomes translucent, add cumin.

Cook 30 seconds, then add garlic and cook for another 30 to 60 seconds.

Add 1 can black beans and 2 cups vegetable broth. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Turn off heat. Using a hand blender, blend the ingredients in the pot, or transfer to a blender. Add the second can of beans to the pot along with blended ingredients and bring to a simmer.

Serve soup with diced carrots, cilantro or spinach for garnish.

I add a bit of cilantro to the pot, too. ;)
