"Eat Clean" Black Bean Soup

This is a great “clean out the fridge” kind of soup–I had some bell peppers that were looking a little sad, so this soup was a delicious way to use them up.  The flavor is reminiscent of the 10-Minute Tortilla Soup, but more veggie and less Mexican.

This recipe is out of the Eat Clean Diet Cookbook.

"Eat Clean" Black Bean Soup
Recipe type: Soup
  • 2 ribs celery, trimmed and coarsely chopped
  • 1 fat carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1 small onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and de-veined, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, seeded and de-veined, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable stock
  • 2 cans black beans
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. In large, deep pot, saute celery, carrot, onion and bell peppers until onion becomes translucent, about 8 minutes.
  2. Add garlic and spices and cook another 2 minutes.
  3. Add vegetable stock or broth, beans, and tomatoes.
  4. Bring mixture to a boil and then reduce heat.  Cover and let simmer for about 20 minutes.
  5. Puree soup to desired consistency in a couple batches in the blender or use an immersion blender.  I like mine thicker and chunkier, so I used the Vitamix at a 3-4 setting.
  6. Add corn and let soup simmer for minutes.  Season with salt and pepper and serve hot.
