Healthy Black Bean Soup With Rice

Janelle writes "I recently made this soup and was surprised how amazing it was! I actually ate 2 bowls! I ran some over to my mom because it is her favorite soup...the next day she called me and said "That was the best black bean soup I have ever had!" coming from her, that was a huge compliment (she orders black bean soup every where she goes, haha) I hope you enjoy this simple, delicious, and healthy recipe"~ Janelle

P.S (this is actually not very spicy despite the addition of chili powder, if you wish to have an extra kick please be my guest in adding more!)

2 cans seasoned black beans, chicken broth, olive oil, onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, water (little boy optional lol!)

Dice onions

Peel and chop garlic

Saute onions and garlic in olive oil on med-high heat. When onions start to soften, add chili powder and cumin

Add broth and water

Turn heat up and let simmer for 15 mins

Turn down heat
Take an immersion blender and blend right into the pot of soup. This will liquify some of the beans making a thicker/creamy texture and will leave some beans in tact. If you do not have an immersion blender, please do not let this stop you from making this recipe! Simply take half of the soup and blend it in an actual blender or food processor and place back with remaining soup.

Scoop a cup of rice into your serving bowl. (I just used a simple minute rice here)

Pour soup over top and garnish with fresh cilantro! ( I had 2 helpings of this, which is NOT typical- it was THAT good!)

Best Ever Black Bean Soup

2 cans of seasoned black beans (drained, not rinsed)
1 can chicken broth
1 1/2 cups water
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin
White Rice (I used minute rice, follow instructions on box for 4 people)

In a large pot saute onions and garlic in olive oil until soft. Add chili powder and cumin and stir. Add remaining ingredients and let simmer for 15 mins. Take an immersion blender right into the pot so that some beans are blended and some remain in tact. Place a cup of rice in a bowl and pour in soup, garnish with fresh cilantro!

Thank you Janelle for another amazing recipe!

That looks so good! My 10 yo is not a big meat eater, but loves black beans, so this is a great option. Thanks for sharing it.

This has nothing to do with this post, but I remembered a comment you made around Christmas time about putting your Christmas cards in a bowl and praying for that family at dinner. I've decided to start doing this with my family with prayer requests! Thanks for the idea!

I blogged about it here:

Love your blog!

This looks so good. I love black beans... and I recently learned too that black beans supposedly help your hair pigmentation (i.e. help keep you from going gray!) Maybe it'll work! :)

I use a recipe from Enlightened Cooking for Black Bean Chipotle Lime soup that I LOVE! This sounds great as well for a different black bean variety and I will try it!

For extra heat, a chopped chipotle is great, or some chiptole Tabasco sauce. :)

We also love tortilla chips with our black bean soup. :)

This was so good! Nothing like a warm bowl of soup on a rainy, cold day like today. I didn't have any plans for lunch, and I found this recipe waiting for me in my google reader. I love soup but I have to keep in healthy and light since I am training for a half-marathon, so this was perfect. I spiced it up just a little by adding 1/2 tsp. black pepper and a pinch of cayenne. My kids loved it too! Thank you for sharing!
