15 Minute Black Bean Soup
It’s finally starting to feel like winter around here and that has me craving a hearty bowl of soup. I do love to cook, and in a former life I would spend countless hours in the kitchen. Fast forward to my current life: evenings are often so busy that I have only 20-30 minutes to get dinner on the table.
Super quick black bean soup to the rescue. This recipe only has 5 basic ingredients and you can make it start to finish in 15 minutes. Best of all, you can keep all the basic ingredients in your pantry, allowing you to whip up this soup without a trip to the grocery store. You can customize it with an assortment of garnishes. I love mine with a dollop of 2% greek yogurt, chopped avocado, cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
Nutritionally, this soup is your friend too. Thanks to the black beans, it’s full of fiber and vegetarian protein. Add a salad and some cornbread or crackers, and you have an inexpensive, quick and healthy dinner.
