Original recipe from https://www.veggieinspired.com/simple-black-bean-soup/


Garnish/Toppings, use what you like:

  • Diced avocado
  • Sliced green onion
  • Chopped tomato
  • Fresh lime juice
  • Sriracha sauce
  • Crushed tortilla chips
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Vegan sour cream


  1. In a soup pot over medium heat, sauté the onion, garlic and red bell pepper in 1/4 cup water until softened, about 5-6 minutes. Add water as necessary to prevent sticking.
  2. Add the cumin, oregano, smoked paprika, and salt and sauté another minute or two until the spices are fragrant.
  3. Add black beans, tomatoes and vegetable broth. (Start with 3 cups of broth, you can add more later if you like a thinner soup). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 15-20 minutes.
  4. Using an immersion blender, puree as much as the soup as you like (I do about 1/2). Alternately, you can carefully transfer 1/2 of the soup to a blender, purée, and add back to the pot. Add the other cup of broth if you like a thinner soup.
  5. Serve hot with the toppings of your choice.
