Crazy Fast Black Bean Soup





As we cleanse from our holiday splurges, I look for meals that are fast and packed with goodness. Here's a favorite.

Crazy Fast Black Bean Soup

6 TB olive oil
small bag of baby carrots
6 celery stalks
1 bell pepper
3 onions
4 large cloves of garlic
2 cartons of veggie broth
4 cans black beans

With the larger produce, just quarter or cut down enough to make blending easier.

In a blender or Vitaminx, throw in the carrots, celery and bell pepper with enough broth to keep things moving. Mix til smooth - as long as it takes. Pour into giant soup pot. Back to the blender, throw in the onions and garlic with a little bit of the broth (I always find myself doubling the garlic, cause I'm obsessed). Mix til smooth. Throw all of that in the pot along with the olive oil. Bring to a simmer, cover and walk away for about ten minutes.

Rinse the beans and throw those in. Let simmer, cover and walk away for about another ten minutes. Then mush up the beans as much as you can with a potato masher. Salt and pepper to taste.

Sounds yummy and hides some good things to get some things going for one certain young man in my house! I think I would have to serve it over some brown rice and tell him was beans and rice . Still a go to for him after 9 years!
Thanks I think I'm gonna go get the blentex out!
God Bless,
