    What You’ll Need:

    A Large Soup Pot

    A Blender or Food Processor

    Wooden Spoon for Stirring

     

    Ingredients:

    2 tablespoons Olive Oil

    2 Medium Onions Chopped

    3 Medium Carrots Chopped

    3 Medium Celery Sticks Chopped

    3 Cans (15 1/2 OZ) Black Beans

    1 Can (15 OZ) Low Fat Coconut milk

    3 Cups Organic Vegetable Broth

    1 Tablespoon Chopped Garlic

    ¼ Cup Fresh Chopped Cilantro

    1 Tablespoon Organic Cumin

    1 Tablespoon Coriander

    1 Teaspoon Turmeric

    1 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika

    1/4 Teaspoon Chili Flakes

    1 Teaspoon Sea Salt

     

    How to Put It Together:

    1) Heat a soup pot over medium heat. Add the olive oil; swirl it around the pan. Add the chopped onions, carrots and celery, stirring to move the veggies around the pot to cook them evenly. When the onions begin to look opaque, add the cumin, coriander, turmeric, smoked paprika and chili flakes, stirring until lightly fragrant; about 5 minutes. This will bring out the rich flavors in the spices. Stir in the vegetable broth and add 2 cans beans and their water to the pot. Add the garlic and grate the ginger root right into the pot. Add the coconut milk & balance of the broth and bring the pot to a simmer.

     

    2) Puree remaining can of beans and add to pan, stirring. Ladle into 8 soup bowls.

     

    3) Serve and enjoy!

     

    Nina’s Tasty Tips:

    This soup freezes well! Just store it in a airtight container with a piece of parchment directly on the soup. It will stay fresh for up to 3 months in the freezer.
