This black bean tomato soup is super healthy, 100% vegan recipe, and is the quickest one I’ve written here on my blog.
Today was one of those days that I don’t know how, but time just slipped away, and suddenly when I looked at the clock it was already 1:00. Normally, I am super organized and have planned out what to write on my blog, but today I got distracted, but then inspired to cook this bean and tomato soup. This black bean tomato soup is so delicious and easy to make that while I tasted it, I thought it was the perfect post for today.
This recipe is absolutely ideal for when you are in a hurry, or you want something delicious and filling, or when you want to cook only one dish that has everything or have to make use of old tomatoes in the fridge. This mouthwatering Mexican soup will also be stellar on a cold winter day.
You begin by roasting tomato, onion, and garlic…then the beans, and the secret ingredients (I made a video and will post it later) which are oregano and spearmint. (You could also use cilantro instead of the spearmint or ever dried spearmint or peppermint work well also). These herbs change the soup’s flavor most delightfully, and it’s turned into a delicacy when you garnish it with tortilla strips, avocado, cream, (I use cashew cream) and ancho peppers.
Here is the recipe

Black bean soup
- Put a big pot on the stove and pour a tbsp of water in. Put the tomatoes and onion in the pan until they look well roasted throughout. It will take about 5 to 7 min on each side. Put in the garlic when the tomatoes are almost ready.
- Put in the beans and let it simmer until it boils for about 10 min. Blend everything very well and return to the pot. Add in the oregano and peppermint and the salt. Adjust the seasoning if needed.
- If the soup is too thick put in a 1/4 cup of water or vegetable broth, mix in taste and repeat if necessary.
- Put the soup in a bowl and garnish with tortilla chips, pieces of avocado, cashew cream and ancho chile.
