Yum. This soup was tasty, although I wished I started cooking earlier. That pressure cooker of mine sure does spoil me with it’s super cooking speed. That 3 hour stove top cook time was a surprise when I finally sat down to look at the recipe clearly. No matter. It was fantastic and I’ll make it again!

  1. Looks delicious! Will try this next week.
    Last night Fauna and I tried to make a black bean soup…..big FLOP. We ended up draining out a lot of the vegetable stock, added lots of cumin and some garbanzo beans, then served it over rice. I blame the recipe I used, called for too much stock and too little cumin. Our experimental dish actually ended up tasting pretty good though.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe Annie!

    I love it when an experiment works out! Sadly most of the time it’s hard to remember what you did to it to replicate the results. Black bean soup is so good!
