Garden and spicy black bean soup

Yesterday and today my husband and I made this from scratch. GO US! I love working with power tools! How about you guys?

Then I made some black bean soup! Yummy!

Spicy Black Bean Soup

  • 2-3 cups of black beans (I use pre-cooked that I had made the day before)
  • 1/2 bell pepper chopped (don’t be too picky you are going to puree it at the end)
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 3 stalks of celery chopped
  • 3 cups of chicken broths
  • 1tbsp salt
  • 1tbsp pepper
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp mild ground pepper
  • cheese, sour cream, chips, cilantro, pickled hot peppers (for garnish)
  1. Put everything in a pot or crock pot and cook for 3 hours.
  2. Puree up in a blender or with an immersion blender( I like this one, it’s just fun)
  3. Serve with your garnish

That’s it and it was soooo good!

Recipes coming this week…….garlic oil, eggplant parmesan (or mini pizzas as I like to call them),  thai inspired salad

Hi, I'm a stay-at-home mom trying to find a healthier lifestyle that works for my family and me.

We need to make it work!
