Canned beans give you a jump-start to tasty bowls of Black Bean Soup. Enjoy bites of carrots, red bell pepper, and celery in every spoonful.

How to Make It

Step 1

Warm oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, bell pepper, carrots and celery; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 12 minutes. Add chili powder and cumin. Sauté for about 3 minutes.

Step 2

Stir in broth and beans, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove 2 cups of soup and puree in a blender. Stir pureed soup back into pot and cook 5 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Spoon soup into bowls, top with yogurt and cilantro and serve.

Great all around meal with protein from the black beans and plenty of nutritious veggies. Easy to make and most of the ingredients are pretty commonly kept on hand. Delicious!
