Number of Servings: 4


    3 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    2 medium onions, finely chopped, 1/3 cup reserved for garnish
    1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
    3 large cloves garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon ground cumin
    1/4 tsp cayenne
    1/4 tsp liquid smoke
    4 cups water
    2 cups brewed coffee
    1 teaspoon salt, plus more if needed
    Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish


Heat oil in a soup pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add all but 1/3 cup of the onions, bell pepper, and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are beginning to brown, 5 to 8 minutes. Add cumin, cayenne and cook, stirring, 1 minute more. Add the beans, liquid smoke, water, and coffee cover and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Puree about half of the soup in a blender or food processor until fairly smooth. Return the pureed soup to the pot and heat through.
Serve the soup garnished with the reserved chopped onion and cilantro, if desired.
