  • Servings: 4-5
  • Preparation Time: 30

Ingredients

  • 2 cans black beans
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 onion

  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp. hot sauce (such as Sriracha)
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • Salt & pepper

Directions

  • Chop up the onion and sauté in a soup pot with the olive oil over medium-low heat until the onion begins to turn translucent. Add the garlic, stir, and sauté for another minute. Stir in the cumin, chili powder, 1 tbsp. of the hot sauce, and a little salt and pepper. Add 1 can of black beans and the vegetable stock, and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat. Pour the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Remove the skin and pit from the avocados and cut up into bite-sized pieces. Add half of the diced avocado to the ingredients in the blender and reserve the rest for garnish. Blend until smooth. Pour the blended ingredients back into your soup pot and add the other can of black beans. Stir, bring back to a simmer, and serve hot in bowls with the remaining avocado and hot sauce sprinkled on top for garnish.

Notes

Enjoy this easy and comforting meal that you can prepare in under 30 minutes. This soup is super creamy (thanks to the avocado) and rich in fiber, folate, protein, and healthy fats. Thanks so much to Beverly at Whole Foods Upper West Side for the inspiration!
