Spicy Black Bean Soup
This recipe which is a cross between a soup and a stew happens to be one of our favourites at All about greens HQ as this wonderfully spicy, smoky and flavoursome dish just hits the spot when it’s lunchtime or we want a quick and easy supper. Black beans are a great source of protein and fibre and leave your tummy feeling full for a very long time after eating them which is great news if you don’t want to snack between meals. Although we have never visited South America….yet…..this soup conjures up all of the ambience and flavours that we imagine if we were eating it over there. Although we have used dried beans in our recipe, tinned beans can be switched in, however that said there is something quite comforting about having a pan of dried beans simmering on the hob whilst you go about your daily chores or work. We often cook our beans the day before in readiness of making this dish, no great hardship required and the fact that we have eschewed the soaking process cuts some of the preparation down. You can go to town with your garnishing as the soup on it’s own can look a little drab, the more colourful the better and we often get carried away in this quarter.
