Creamy, simple & delicious, this Smoky Black Bean Soup is a must try! This soup has lots of veggies, fiber-packed beans and the perfect kick of spice. I love this for an easy dinner (it is ready in 35 minutes) or make ahead lunches. Plus everything is made in one pot!

Step One: Cook the Veggies

The key to a great, simple soup, is the base. So, believe me when I say I did not skimp on the seasonings. This is what will give your soup a rich flavor in very little time.

Heat some avocado oil in a stock pot over medium heat. Add a yellow onion, garlic, bell pepper & jalapeño. For the dry seasonings you’ll need:

  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • smoked paprika
  • cumin
  • chipotle chili powder 
  • pepper

Add the seasonings to the veggies, along with some chipotle peppers in adobo. Let everything cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

For less spice use less jalapeño, chipotle chili powder and chipotles in adobo.

Step Two: Boil the Soup

Once the veggies are startig to get tender and the spices smell delicious, it is time to add everything else to the pot.

Pour in a can of crushed tomatoes, broth, soy sauce and black beans. Bring to a boil, lower heat and partially cover. Simmer for 15 minutes. If you have more time, you can let it simmer even longer.

Step Three: Blend

I made this soup smooth by blending it. To do this, you have a couple options. You can either keep the soup in the pot and use an immersion blender. Or, you can transfer the soup to a standing blender.

I wanted the soup to be smooth & creamy, but you could also leave it a little chunky. To do this, only blend half of the soup.

Right before serving, add some lime juice and give the soup of taste before ladling it into bowls.

Step Four: Serve

When it comes to toppings (because you know I love toppings), I like to use non-dairy yogurt, avocado, cilantro & hot sauce. I also like to have some warm tortillas on the side for dipping!

And there you have it. Super delicious vegan soup that is healthy & simple.
