Vegan Black bean soup
As we prepare for another nor’easter to hit us I make this soup to warm our bellies . This is one of those feel good soup fairly simple to put together and so satisfying .I have made this soup with canned beans as well as dry. I normally keep the beans ready in my freezer . Every other week I soak the beans black ,garbanzo and kidney beans separately in a mixing bowl with twice the amount of water overnight on a Saturday and then in the morning I steam them either in a pressure cooker or in an instant pot . It takes a better chunk of the morning but then I am set for a few weeks .I have the beans ready in my freezer for any recipe on-a busy day . That said the soup turns out great either way !!
2 cans black beans or 4 cups prepared black beans
1 medium onion
2 teaspoon spoon fresh grated garlic
3 cups vegetable broth
1 green chilly
2 teaspoon roasted cumin powder
1 tea spoon coriander powder
1 tea spoon red chilly powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon oil
1 . Heat the oil on medium high heat in a pan and sauté onion and garlic for 4 -5 min .
2 . Add the spices , roasted cumin, coriander,red chilly powder and the green chillies.
3 . Now mix in the beans, if using canned wash them well to get rid of the preservatives . Take a spoon and mash some beans with it (about half of them )in the pan itself.
4 . Add the vegetable broth , salt and pepper to taste .
5 . Let it boil for 10 min on medium high heat .
6 . Serve it hot , you can garnish with green onions or avacado .
