We like to serve this soup over polenta or pasta with sharp cheddar cheese sprinkled over the top. It keeps for about a week and leftovers freeze beautifully for (even quicker) weeknight meals.

Recipe Ingredients for Quick and Easy Black Bean Soup

1 tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ginger
1 tablespoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
28 oz of fire-roasted tomatoes
720 g water
4 cups black beans
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1 1/5 g salt

Recipe Directions for Quick and Easy Black Bean Soup

  1. Add the onion and saute in the oil until translucent--about 5 minutes. Add the pepper and saute until sweated--another 5 minutes. Add the garlic and spices, and saute until fragrant--about 30 seconds.

  2. Pour in the diced tomatoes, their juices, and the vegetable broth. Scrape the bottom of the pan to release any caramelized bits. Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer over medium-low heat.

  3. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add beans and simmer for another 10 minutes. Pour in 2 Tablespoons of the cider vinegar, check seasonings, and add more salt, pepper, or vinegar as desired.

  4. Serve in individual bowls and enjoy!
