Slow Cooker Vegetarian Black Bean SoupSubmitted by: MRSDUDLEY
IntroductionThis hearty vegetarian friendly soup is packed with protein, fiber and healthy carbohydrates. I like to serve mine with a warm piece of crusty bread for dipping. This hearty vegetarian friendly soup is packed with protein, fiber and healthy carbohydrates. I like to serve mine with a warm piece of crusty bread for dipping.
1 lb. dried black beans
4 cups vegetable stock (I like to use homemade)
1 cup water ( I like to use water from the beans that were being soaked)
28 oz. can of petite cut diced tomatoes w/ the liquid (undrained)
2 cups onions, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 serrano chile, diced (optional or could be substituted with a pepper with less heat)
1 T ground cumin
3 bay leaves
1 tsp kosher salt
14 - wedges of lime
14 tsp cilantro, chopped
Makes approximately 14 - HEARTY one cup servings.
Sort & wash beans; place in a large bowl and cover with at least 2 inches of water above the beans. Cover the bowl and let stand for at least 8 hours or up to overnight. Drain (reserving 3 cups of water).
Combine beans, stock, water, tomatoes, peppers, onion, garlic, cumin, salt & bay leaves in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 10 hours. Discard bay leaves and serve with one wedge of lime and fresh chopped cilantro.
Tip: If the beans have not broke down enough blend half of the soup in a blender then return to the pot. You could also use an immersion blender to break them up as well.

We really liked this and it is full of veggies! I recommend adding the salt and tomatoes in the last hour of cooking as both ingredients are known for toughening beans. I held mine out and the beans broke down just fine. I still used my immersion blender for half of the soup. Top with salsa & SC - 10/9/12
