Black bean soup

Submitted by: ENGINEERMOM

Introduction

A low-fat, very filling soup for cold days!

I marked it vegetarian because it's very easy to make it veggie - leave out the sausage and replace the chicken bouillon with veggie broth. Let the onions carmelize a bit in some olive oil or butter to get some of that slightly smoky flavor.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2.25 c. dry black beans (or about one 1-lb bag)
    1 large onion, diced
    2 ribs of celery, diced
    6 cloves of garlic, minced
    1/2 lb Hillshire Farms Turkey Smoked Sausage
    1 t. marjoram
    1/4-1/2 t. cayenne pepper or to taste

Directions

In a skillet, brown the sausage and onions together until onions just start to carmelize. Add the garlic and cook briefly until fragrant.

Add all ingredients to a 4-5 qt crockpot. Add 6 cups of water. Cook on HIGH for 2-4 hours until beans are tender. Check after 2 hours to make sure there is enough liquid. Add 2 tsp of chicken bouillon granules for every 3 cups of water, or to taste.

Note: You do not have to soak the beans. However, you do need to wait until the end to add the bouillon. The extra salt will make the beans tough if added at the beginning.

Number of Servings: 6
