What You'll Need:

olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 small red onion, minced

1/2 tsp sea salt
1 sweet bell pepper, diced

4 c veggie broth
3 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
Juice of 1 lime

1/2 tsp black pepper
1 bay leaf
1 Tbsp cumin
1 Tbsp oregano
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp turmeric

Optional Fixins:

Sheep's milk feta
Diced avocado
Greek yogurt
Fresh cilantro


Saute onion and garlic with olive oil in a soup pot until aromatic. Add bell pepper and salt, cook an additional 2 minutes.

Add beans, broth and lime juice. Bring to a boil.

Meanwhile, mix spices in a small bowl.

Lower liquid to a simmer, add spices, cook an additional 10 minutes.

Remove from heat, remove bay leaf. Pulse using an immersion blender (this was the best investment ever, FYI), or transfer to a blender or food processor to desired consistency.

Top with desired fixins. ENJOY!
