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 .
