Today I’m going to share with you my recipe for my delicious slow cooker black bean soup, and the coolest part is it all cooks up in your slow cooker so it’s super simple, you can just set it and forget it.
- 1 cup of red onion diced
- 1 cup of celery diced
- 1 1/2 cup of red bell pepper diced
- 3 tbs oil
- 1 1/2 tbs minced garlic
- 1 tbs minced jalapeno
- 1/2 tbs cumin
- 1/2 tbs chili powder
- 1/4 tbs oregano
- 1 cup vegetable broth
- 1 can black beans
- 1/2 cup of salsa
For this beautiful soup I’m going to get started with some red onion some celery and some diced red bell pepper. Now you have two options here you can either dump these veggies straight into your slow cooker, that will totally work, or if you want to get a deeper flavor you can saute them first on the stove, that’s what I’m going to do today. So I’ve just got some oil heating up in a frying pan and to that I’m going to add my veggies. I’m also going to be adding some minced garlic and some minced jalapeno.
We’re going to saute these for another 40 seconds and then we are going to add our spices. So I am toasting up some cumin some chili powder and a little bit of oregano. I’m going to heat these spices up for another 40 seconds and then I’m just going to deglaze the pan using 1/2 cup of vegetable broth. I’m going to pour with whole mixture into my slow cooker. For this recipe I’m using canned black beans. If you are using canned black beans you can just dump the entire can straight into the slow cooker.
So I’m adding my black beans to my slow cooker and to that I’m going to add some salsa. Now you add plain diced tomatoes. And then the last step is topping up your slow cooker with remaining 1/2 cup vegetable broth. Now put on the lid and then set my slow cooker for 6-8 hours on low. Once your soup is ready you can use an immersion blender to puree it. Now if you don’t have an immersion blender like this don’t sweat it at all you could totally use a traditional blender as well.
Now going to the decoration of that recipe:
Now that slow cooker black bean soup is pureed we’re just going to add one more delicious element. We’re going to squeeze the juice of two limes into our soup. We’re going to give this a good stir and then it’s time to serve our soup. I like topping mine with a little bit of sour cream, some fresh avocado slices and some fresh cilantro. How amazing does this look. Thanks for reading this recipe and don’t forget to share this recipe with your friends.
