Honestly, this soup is so easy to make that I almost expected it to have no flavour. But that is so far from the truth it's unreal. This soup is DELICIOUS and so simple to pull together! With a tiny hint of spice from 1/4 of a jalapeno, a smokiness from the fire roasted tomatoes and a freshness from the cilantro and lime juice garnish, this soup packs all the flavour alongside all the fiber from a whopping two cans of organic black beans. Your taste buds and your digestive track will thank you!
Here's what you need to make the soup:
1L carton organic GF veggie broth
2 cans organic black beans, rinsed well
14 ounces organic fire roasted crushed or diced tomatoes (1/2 can of the brand shown below)
1/2 red onion diced
1/4-1/2 jalapeno, diced (depending how spicy you like it)
2 carrots, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
2 tbsp EVO
2 tbsp chilli powder
1 tbsp cumin
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
1/2 tbsp each, S & P (or to taste)
1 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
Fresh cilantro and lime wedges for garnish
Here's what you need to do:
Heat EVO on medium heat in a large soup pot. Dice carrots, onion, jalapeno and celery - then add to pot along with S & P.
Let veg sweat until onions become translucent. Then add black beans, crushed tomatoes and spices. Heat for a few more mins before adding veggie broth.
Add veggie broth and bring to a boil. Then reduce to low and simmer for 10 mins.
Remove soup from heat and blend with an immersion blender or in a blender in batches.
Garnish with fresh squeezed lime and fresh cilantro and enjoy!

PS. In case you're wondering, I love this brand of fire roasted tomatoes available at No Frills, Metro and Organic Garage in Toronto. Also my fave for pasta sauce! ;)
