Soups Starters US/Caribbean Vegetarian

Black bean soup


  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Carrot
  • 2 Cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 Chilli, chopped
  • 2 Tsp Cumin powder
  • 1 Can Chopped tomatoes
  • 2 Cans Black beans
  • 500ml Chicken/vegetable stock
  • Olive oil (a few tablespoons)


Add the oil to a pan and set to a medium heat. Add the chopped onion and carrot and fry for about ten minutes until soft (not brown). Now add the garlic and cumin and gently fry for a minute before adding the rest of the ingredients. Allow to cook at a simmer for 20 mins or so to reduce the soup slightly.

Now remove around one third of the soup and put it through a blitzer before returning to the pan, this will give it a great texture. Cook for a further 10 mins and serve with some grated cheese on top.
