Black Bean Soup a comforting and nourishing dish that’s economical, keeps in the fridge for several days, and also freezes well.
My recipes always call for dried beans that need to be soaked overnight before cooking. I realize that using canned black beans is quicker, but it’s important to remember that beans, while a healthy food, need to be properly prepared to remove the anti-nutrients. It takes a little forethought to remember to soak the beans in water the night before, but the extra step is worth it!
The easiest way to puree this soup is with an immersion blender. Before I bought one of these, I use to ladle the soup in batches into the blender which left me with many more dishes to clean and drippings all over the counter. If you don’t already have this small appliance, I highly recommend it! It can also be used to blend salad dressings and smoothies.
