Introduction

Very hearty soup with fresh flavors. Add more of the beans' cooking liquid for a thinner soup. Sweet potatoes would be a nice addition. Very hearty soup with fresh flavors. Add more of the beans' cooking liquid for a thinner soup. Sweet potatoes would be a nice addition.

Ingredients

    2 Tbs olive oil
    1/2 large onion, diced
    5 stalks celery, diced
    4 medium carrots, diced
    1 large zucchini, diced
    2-3 tomatoes, diced
    2 1/2 cups cooked black beans (plus some of the water they cooked in--about a cup)
    1 large clove garlic
    1 Tbs chili powder, or to taste
    1/4 c. ground flax seed
    1 tsp fresh ginger
    juice from 2 limes, divided
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Heat oil in medium pot. Add onion, celery, carrots, and cook over medium heat until veggies begin to soften.

Add zucchini, tomatoes, beans (and liquid), garlic, and simmer about 10 minutes.

Add chili powder, ginger, and 3/4 of lime juice.

Remove from heat and blend about 1/2 of the chunks with a stick blender, or carefully put 1/2 the soup into a blender, puree, and return to the pot.

Simmer another 10 minutes or so and adjust the seasonings. Add in remaining 1/4 of lime juice just before serving.

Makes 7 cups (one cup/serving)
