Once the temperatures begin to drop, I become a soup and comfort food making machine! I love fall and winter cooking…and eating!  This Black Bean Soup Recipe is one I have made a number of times and its always a hit.

  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced or 2 TBS garlic paste
  • 8-10 cups of beef stock
  • 5 bay leaves
  • 2½ cups dried Turtle Beans (or 2 cups dried black beans)
  • 3 TBS grapeseed or olive oil
  • 12 ounces bacon, chopped
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 TSP grated lime zest
  • 1 TBS fresh lime juice
  • Tabasco (I like it spicy, so I use a lot – start with 1 tsp and go from there)
  • 2 teaspoons of Sherry
  • Serve with sour cream, sliced scallions, chips, etc
  • Rinse your beans in a colander, place them in a large pot and cover with water plus an additional 2-3 inches of water. Set on your cool stove or counter and allow them to soak overnight or for at least 8-10 hours.
  • Drain your beans and set aside. In your large pot, saute your bacon until almost crisp. Add your onion and saute for about 5 minutes, add your garlic and saute another 2-3 minutes, scraping up any brown bits as you do.
  • Add your beans, 8 cups of beef broth and bay leaves and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, uncovered for about 1½ to 2 hours, stirring every so often (beans will be tender). Be sure beans are not sticking, if so add another cup of stock.
  • Choose how thick you want the soup by the stock you add. Some of the beans will break apart and thicken the soup (which is how I happen to like it, sometimes I use a potato masher and mash it up just a bit).
  • Pull out the Bay leaves and then add your s&p, sugar, dry mustard, lime zest, lime juice, Tabasco, sherry, and chili sauce if using. I allow this to sit for an hour uncovered and off the heat sg the flavors to deepen. I reheat briefly and serve. This is wonderful the next 2 days!
