Our Famous Black Bean Soup

Black bean soup recipe so easy and delicious. Our restaurant customer’s favorite!

Miriam: We will skip the story about the black beans on the ceiling will you?

Kristi: Ha ha yes I will skip it for now although it’s very tempting I have to tell you! Maybe in our next book.

Miriam: Good idea.

This recipe is a 20 minute miracle. Done in a pressure cooker. And can be adapted quickly for a salad or spicy black bean hummus.

Miriam: I think you’re really going to enjoy this recipe it’s savory without being full of salt.

Kristi: Our restaurant customers loved our black bean burritos made with these beans as well as our black beans and rice salad.

  • Pour a 16 0z bag of black beans in a bowl rinse and pick out any stones. Soak 2 hours.

  • Add beans to pressure cooker add 4 cups of water and  2 garlic cloves.

  • (Miriam: I also like to blend up a 1/4 onion, 1/2 green pepper and 1 tomato… and add to beans… part of my mom’s secret recipe!)
  • Place lid on and turn on high.

  •  The pressure release will jiggle slowly and when it jiggles fast, turn down to 7 or medium-ish and cook 5 minutes.

  •  Turn burner off and leave on burner to let cool until pressure is gone.

  •  Add 2 tsp of Braggs Liquid aminos, pinch of Celtic Sea Salt and 3 T of Canary Island Garlic and Herb olive oil.
