My recipe uses canned black beans.

Why? Because I just don't have the time, patience, or inclination to cook dried black beans.

Add Lemon Juice

Don't be tempted to omit the lemon juice in the recipe. It adds that little zip of tangy flavor!

What ARE Black Beans?

Black beans are a type of legume that is high in protein and fiber, and they have a delicious, nutty flavor.

Origins of Black Bean Soup

Black bean soup is a traditional dish that is popular in Latin American countries. It is made with black beans, vegetables, and spices. Black bean soup is typically served with rice or tortillas.

How Do You Grow 'em?

Black beans are typically grown in warm climates. They are planted in the spring and harvested in the fall.





Do You Add Meat to this Soup?

No, black bean soup is typically made with vegetables only. However, you could add meat if you wanted to. Some common additions include chicken, beef, or pork. In doing so, to me, that would begin to resemble chili! (Without the heat, of course!)

Ingredients for Black Bean Soup:

salt* and pepper to taste, add a blob of sour cream for garnish

How to Make this Satisfying Black Bean Soup:

  1. Re-hydrate the onions, celery, garlic, and drain well.
  2. Cook the bacon in a saucepan, take it out when cooked and let it cool so you can crumble it up later.
  3. Add the re-hydrated items to the pan and the bacon grease, cook for about five minutes.
  4. Add the cup of vegetable stock.
  5. Add the two cans of beans, drain them first, but there’s no need to rinse them. Add the Worcestershire Sauce and the ketchup, add the crumbled bacon.
  6. Stir together well, simmer ten minutes. Add the lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste, and stir again... and serve with a blob of sour cream! Yummy!


*IF you need to add salt, do so, BUT be careful NOT to over-salt as the bouillon has salt in it.

Tip: Lemon Juice Adds That Little Zip of Flavor...
and the Bacon Really Adds to the Depth

A little note here about beans. If you prefer to suffer from less gas—and who wouldn't?—consider rinsing the beans first as this takes away most of the gaseous effect of the beans. Just grab your sieve and rinse them under the kitchen faucet... how easy is that solution to gas?!
