Black Bean Soup

2014-07-22 16.46.10

A friend gave me a bunch of fresh spices from her garden and I have been trying to increase my protein intake. So, I decided to make a giant pot of black bean soup. It’s so yummy!

I made this in my crockpot, so it’s very easy. If you have a normal sized crockpot, make sure to half this recipe. What you will need:

6 cups black beans, sorted, rinsed, soaked overnight, drained and rinsed again

1 large onion, diced

2 cups diced mushrooms

3 cubes no salt added bouillon 

1/2 cup fresh chives, chopped

1 TBS fresh oregano

2 TBS crushed garlic

2 tsp red chili powder

1 and 1/2 tsp cumin

8 cups water

Sea salt to taste

Vegan sour cream (optional)

Avocado, sliced (optional)

Place everything but the salt, sour cream, and avocado in the crockpot. Cook on high for an hour and then low at least 7 hours. Taste and add salt if desired. Garnish with avocado slices and vegan sour cream. Yummers!
