Recipe – Black Bean Soup

This recipe has been modified from the Vitamix Black Bean Recipe. I think the
Vitamix soup recipes are very good. I like to tweak recipes which is what I have done
here. If you do not have a Vitamix then a high speed blender will work fine.

3 C vegetable stock
1 360 g canned, drained and rinsed black beans
1 360 g canned, drained and rinsed chickpeas
1/2 onion sliced sautéed
1 garlic cloves, roasted
3 Tbsp lime juice
1 hot fresh chilli
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 red capsicum
1/4 C chopped scallions for garnish


Place all of the above ingredients into your high speed blender in the order listed and place the lid on tight.
Switch the blender onto the soup setting or on high for 6 – 7 minutes or until steam escapes from the lid
Serve immediately.
