Love the sound of this.


Sounds delish, but just curious, what do you serve along with the soup?


Ironically, I had also made black bean soup last night for dinner. My recipe is pretty different than yours (involving more like 8 cloves of garlic, a can of tomatoes, parsnips and oregano) but it also used a bunch of freshly ground cumin. Mmmm. I cooked mine in the pressure cooker for around 30mins and hit it with the stick blender. Served diced roast pork loin on top, though my 7yo didn't like the meat added.

I just love the idea of doing that while making breakfast..oh to be so organized. If I were home all morning it would be easier. Maybe a slow-cooker would be a good idea..


mmm...sounds yummy! i may have to add that to my meal plan tomorrow!
btw, i am super slow and just sent over my paperwork to blog her ads...how long does all that typically take? just curious and thanks for the heads up!


Haven't made black bean soup for a while, thanks for the reminder!

Cooking Gear To Spice Things Up

  • All-Clad cookware
    I use the stainless line. I love it because you can put it in the dishwasher. If you like to cook it is sooo worth it to have quality pots and pans. I recommend buying a set on sale and then filling in extras as you need them. (Watch for sales and specials.)
  • Cast Iron Skillet
    Please get rid of all your teflon-coated non-stick plans and get a cast iron skillet. I use mine for searing meat, poultry, and fish and then finishing off in the oven. In fact, get two cast iron skillets—one large enough to hold two ribeyes and a smaller, fried-egg-sized one for making...well...eggs.
  • Food Processor
    Quickly slice/shred veggies and cheese, make hummus or other spreads in a snap, and make pie crust without making a mess.
  • Global Knives
    I am partial to the 18 incher. Yep, I like big knives and I cannot lie. If you like to cook (or even if you don't) you deserve to have good knives. At least one.
  • Instant Hot Water Dispenser
    If you can't afford to have one built-in, this is a great alternative. It's nice to have boiling water at the push of a button to make tea, instant miso soup, or morning oatmeal for the kidlets.
  • Microplane Grater/Zester
    Use this to grate citrus zest, nutmeg, and cheese. You could get a coarser one, but you don't need to. I have one and I use it for everything.
  • Penzey's Spices
    A great resource for all your herb and spice needs.
  • Rice Cooker
    Every family should have one.
  • Silpat
    Silpat is a silicone mat used for baking. They come in various sizes. Items will not stick to it. It is a must for any home baker.
  • Stick or Immersion Blender
    It doesn't have to be fancy, but try and get the highest HP you can afford. I use my stick blender (+ attachments) for making salad dressing (weekly), pureeing soups, making babyfood, and whipping cream.
