Vegan Black Bean Soup

Posted by in Cooking, Lunch/Dinner, Soup | 0 comments














Hello & Happy Friday!!






For some, black bean soup seems so mundane, but for some reason.. 



I always loved Black Bean soup!



Anything that could be topped with sour cream and avocado is a winner in my book lol




So this recipe is comprised of the “Classic” Black Bean Soup ingredients, but has a little more of a spanish twist with a hint of fire!









What’s wonderful about any soup, is that typically they are easy, affordable, ingredients are accessible, can be made in bulk, and you can acheive an array of consistancies, which completely change the experience of all soups!


If love Black Bean Soup and things with a hint of spice, then you have to give this recipe a go!



So easy, so fab, you can’t mess it up!










Why this recipe rocks:





Accessible ingredients


Can be made in large batches

Minimal ingredients

High  in protein 

Can add more veggies such as bell peppers and carrots for a bigger nutrient boost!
