Default Black bean (plus a ton of other veggies) soup

Tonight we are having black bean soup with some bonus vegetables thrown in. I will be getting my next CSA share in two days and needed to use up the veggies we had in the crisper.

Besides soaked dried black beans, I added onions, scallions, garlic, mushrooms, Swiss chard, carrots, radishes and bell pepper. Underneath that dark brown slurry, the kids will never know the difference!

Default Re: Black bean (plus a ton of other veggies) soup

That sounds delicious! And reminds me that I wanted to look for a CSA. I wonder if any around here have any shares left. Did you add any other seasoning? I always end up with a sort of bland soup when I use black beans.

I did use about a cup of leftover beef stock and a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce. I know the family will want to add salt, because I don't add any when I cook.

That sounds so satisfying, and what a great way to use up your veggies!
I could go for a nice bowl of soup like that right now. Honestly, nothing sounds good to me to eat right now. I am having one of those "food is icky" days. But that has me wanting some beans now. Thanks for sharing!

Every time you post a soup I have to add it to my to-do list.

Kind of a side note - For my black bean soup, I use oregano and cumin in addition to the standard salt/pepper/onion/garlic that I put in nearly everything. One of these days I should post my recipe. It's yummy.
