Transcript:Low Fat Black Bean Soup

Hi I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make black bean soup.

Black Bean Soup Ingredients

For this recipe you will need:
  • 2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 c. of fat free, reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1 c. medium salsa
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 4 tbsp low fat or fat-free sour cream
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro

Blend the Soup Ingredients

First pour 1/2 of the beans into a blender. Then add the chicken broth, the salsa, and the cumin. Blend these ingredients together for about 10 seconds, so it is lightly pureed. To make a slow-sodium version of this soup, you could use tomatoes instead of the salty salsa.

Heat the Black Bean Soup

Then, place a saucepan over medium heat. Combine the pureed bean mixture with remaining beans. Cook this until the soup is hot.

Serve the Low Fat Black Bean Soup

Next, ladle soup into your bowl. Top each bowl with one tablespoon of sour cream and garnish with a tbsp. of the chopped cilantro. Serve and enjoy.
