I have included another Daniel’s Fast recipe…It’s one of my favorite, easy to make and good to eat!
Think out of the box!
This is a version of Friday’s Black Bean Soup
8 servings – This is a soup I eat all year round.
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 3/4 cup diced white onion (you can also use yellow onions)
- 3/4 cup diced celery
- 1/2 cup diced carrot
- 1/4 cup diced green bell pepper
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 4 (15 ounce) cans black beans
- 4 cups chicken stock
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon Lawry’s
- 1/4 teaspoon hickory liquid smoke
Extras to add some additional flavor
- shredded monterey jack and cheddar cheese blend
- chopped green onion and/or sour cream
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large saucepan over medium/low heat.
Add onion, celery, carrot, bell pepper, and garlic to the oil and simmer slowly (or”sweat” as it’s called), for 15 minutes or until the onions are practically clear.
Keep the heat low enough that the veggies don’t brown and be careful not to burn the garlic or it will be bitter.
While you cook the veggies, pour the canned beans into a strainer and rinse them under cold water.
Measure 3 cups of the drained and strained beans into a food processor with 1 cup of chicken stock.
Puree on high speed until smooth.
When the veggies are ready, pour the pureed beans, the whole beans, the rest of the chicken stock, and every other ingredient in the list (down to liquid smoke), to the pot.
Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 60 minutes or until soup has thickened and all the ingredients are tender.
- Taste the soup and see what you think, if you want to add a little more flavor add a little more chili seasoning or a pinch of extra cayenne.
