Recipe: Black Bean Soup


My all-time favorite soup is black bean.  It’s low in fat and packed with protein and fiber.  It is sure to fill you up!

Ingredients:Black Bean Soup

  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 cans chicken broth
  • 2 cans of low sodium black beans (DO NOT DRAIN)
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 finely diced celery stalks
  • Juice from 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1 Tbsp corn starch (Easy mix tip: thin corn starch with 1/4 cup of HOT water.  Stir with hot water before adding to mixture)


Put all ingredients into a slow cooker.  Cook on high for 2 hours.  Use a potato masher to mash up the beans to your desired consistency/texture.  I like my beans mashed but not pureed.  Cook on high for 2 more hours.

Garnish with green onions, sour cream, salsa or guacamole…or just eat it plain!

I always pair mine with a generous slice of French bread.

This will serve 4 to 6, but it freezes really well.
