No matter where you live, winter is in full swing! For some that means icy sidewalks and snow days while others it means rain drenched streets and chilly temperatures. The best way to combat the winter chills is to make some delicious comfort food. One of my favorite wintertime treats is Black Bean Soup. Today we have a great and simple recipe which is sure to warm you to your toes as well as provide a healthy nourishing vegan dish.
Organic Black Bean Soup
Prep Time: 10 Minutes Cook Time: 30-50 Minutes
Dollop of Vegan Organic Sour Cream (optional)
Soak black beans overnight if you are using dried bean, but canned will work. Dice the carrots, onions, celery, and garlic. Place the beans, vegetable stock, and water in a large pot. Bring this mixture to a boil until beans are nice and soft. Add in the salt, pepper, cumin, garlic, chili powder, and cayenne or paprika. Mix this up and turn the heat down to medium. Add in the onion, carrots, and celery and simmer for about twenty minutes or until vegetables are tender. Garnish with chopped green onion and cilantro. Add a dollop of organic vegan sour cream for an extra treat and serve!
