Low Fat Vegan Mexican Black Bean Corn Soup

Featured in Comfort Soups To Keep You Warm

Serves 8

Ingredients:

1 large onion, diced
6 cloves of garlic, minced
3 stalks of celery, diced
2 carrots, diced
5 cups/1.25 qts./1.2 L of vegetable broth
(homemade or low sodium)
4 15 oz./425 g cans of black beans, low sodium (or
7 cups cooked) undrained
1 15 oz./425 g can of whole sweet corn, drained
(salt free, unsweetened)
1 14.5 oz./411 g can of fire roasted tomatoes,
diced (I use Muir Glen Organics)
1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. roasted cumin (or regular cumin)
1 to 1 1/2 tsp. chipotle chili powder
1/2 tsp. Herbamare or salt (to taste)
1/2 tsp. sugar or sweetener (if needed)
Juice of 1 small lime
Fresh ground pepper to taste
1/2 bunch of cilantro, chopped to garnish

Directions:

1. In a large pot, sauté the onion, celery,
carrots and garlic in 1 cup of vegetable broth
over medium heat for 6-7 minutes. Add chipotle
chili powder, roasted cumin, and black pepper and
cook for another minute or two. Stir in the
remaining vegetable broth, 4 cups (or 2.5 cans) of
black beans, and sweet corn. Turn to high heat and
bring to a boil.

2. Add remaining 3 cups (or 1.5 cans) of beans and
crushed tomatoes to a VitaMix or blender and
process until smooth. Stir into soup when boiling,
reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 15 minutes
until beans and vegetables are done to your
desired tenderness.

3. Taste test. Add Herbamare or salt to taste and
lime juice. If your soup is a little too tangy or
bitter, you can add a little sugar or sweetener to
balance the flavor if desired.

4. Serve in bowls and garnish with fresh chopped
cilantro

I love to serve this soup garnished with a wedge
of lime and a sprig of fresh cilantro to give it
some added color. Feel free to spice it up with
extra chipotle chili powder or even some
jalapeños.
