  • 1 cup white onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery chopped
  • 1/2 cup carrot chopped
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 32 ounces vegetable stock
  • 30 ounces black beans or 3 to 4 cups of cooked black beans
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon of water


  • In a large pot add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Saute onions, celery, and carrots. Sprinkle the vegetables with a pinch of salt to help them release the water in the vegetables. When the onions begin to become translucent add bell pepper and garlic. Continue to saute vegetables until the garlic becomes fragrant. If using canned black beans rinse to remove excess starch. Add beans and vegetable stock to pot. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and the cumin to the soup. Allow the soup to simmer for about 10 minutes to heat through. Taste soup, and adjust salt if needed. Add cornstarch and water mixture to the soup. It will help thicken the soup. Just before serving, add the lemon juice.
