This can be a favourite soup recipe of my household. I exploit natural canned black beans as a result of I don’t at all times plan forward to prepare dinner beans from dried.
My husband grew up in Key West and each time I make this he says it reminds him of his Nana, who he beloved very a lot.
All of it begins with a mix of inexperienced peppers, onions, and carrots (for those who like them). Typically I exploit the carrots and typically I don’t.
Then I rinse the canned black beans utilizing a colander. Now on this image, I used six cans of beans as a result of I triple the recipe since there are such a lot of of us.
Then it’s a matter of rapidly sautéing the veggies, including the beans, seasonings and cooking till performed. Ensure to not skip the pureeing of the beans step as a result of it makes a distinction within the thickness of the soup. Additionally, if you need a vegetarian model of this (which I make if my vegetarian daughter is coming over), simply use water as an alternative of hen broth. You will have to regulate the seasonings for those who do that.
After which you’re performed. It’s thick, wealthy, and simply the correct amount of tang.
