This easy black bean soup is a super simple recipe that uses canned black beans to make a flavorful black bean soup that is easy enough for a quick weeknight meal and would also be perfect for meal prep.

I like to use onions, bell peppers and garlic to create a flavorful base for this soup and then finish things up with a fat squish of lime juice and an optional handful of fresh chopped cilantro.

Black Bean + Pumpkin Soup:
Summer Minestrone Soup:
Kabocha Squash Soup:


1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 large or 2 small yellow onions (about 2 cups chopped)
3 bell peppers, chopped
6 coves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon oregano
4 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
4 cups (32 ounces) low sodium chicken broth*
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional toppings: sliced scallions, diced avocado, cilantro, diced radishes, tortilla chips

Heat olive in a large pot over a medium heat. Add the onions along with a pinch of salt and cook, stirring periodically, for 5 minutes or until onions are just beginning to look translucent.

Stir in the bell peppers, garlic, cumin, chili powder, oregano, salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the peppers have softened and veggies are fragrant.

Pour in black beans and broth and bring up to a boil and then reduce to a gentle simmer and cook for 20-30 minutes, or until the broth is flavorful.

Scoop half of the soup into a blender (about 4 cups) and blend until smooth. Be careful not to fill your blender more than half way and start blending on low, allowing steam to escape from the blender.

Return the blended soup to the pot and a squish of fresh lime juice and adjust the seasonings. Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

    It looks delicious! I’ll add the ingredients to my food list and make it this upcoming week… the only thing I’ll change will be no cilantro for me, I’ll use parsley.
