Black Bean and Salsa Soup

“Black beans, salsa, veggie broth and cumin are tossed into the blender. Transfer to a pot and heat until warm and bubbly. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of green onion.”  Super easy and super great!  (If desired, add 1 lb. of browned grass-fed hamburger, seasoned with salt and pepper, and possibly taco seasoning.)

Serves 4


2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed

1 1/2 cups vegetable broth

1 cup chunky salsa

1 teaspoon ground cumin

4 tablespoons sour cream or plain yogurt

2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion


1. In an electric food processor or blender, combine beans, broth, salsa, and cumin. Blend until fairly smooth.
2. Heat the bean mixture in a saucepan over medium heat until thoroughly heated.
3. Ladle soup into 4 individual bowls, and top each bowl with 1 tablespoon of the sour cream and 1/2 tablespoon green onion.
