Black Tuesday: Black Beans Soup Recipe

This Black Beans Soup recipe is the first in the Black Tuesday menu. It's especially comforting when the weather is cold.

Black Beans Soup


250 g black beans, rinsed and soaked in the cold water for 12 hours
2 tbsp olive oil
1.5 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1 onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 dried chili pepper, peeled and sliced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1 celery stick, finely chopped
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp lemon juice
Yogurt or sour cream and parsley for garnish


In a large saucepan heat the olive oil, add onions and saute until golden. Add garlic, chili pepper, carrots, celery and stir. Pour in the broth, add beans and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes. Season with cumin, oregano, salt and pepper. Reduce heat, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are tender, about 1 1/4 hours. Put a half of the soup to a blender. Puree until smooth and return to the saucepan, mix well. Add the lemon juice and adjust seasonings. (If the soup looks too thick add some water to desired consistency).
Top each serving with a sour cream or a yogurt and a parsley.

And have a Happy Black Tuesday!
