Super Simple Black Bean Soup I Learned From a Cuban Neighbor at the Beach

Description

five ingredient black bean soup



Super simple tasty soup. Five Ingredients only, you probably already have them.

Ingredients

1cnblack beans (Or two cups of juicy black beans you cooked in the Instant Pot (see notes below))
1⁄2cwhite onion (minced as tiny as you possibly can)
2Twhite vinegar (Store brand, generic, whatever, basic basic white vinegar)
1 himalayan mineral salt, ((or any salt really ) to taste)
1 black pepper (to taste)

Notes

Check out this method for cooking a whole lot of black beans in the Instant Pot! Canned beans work well for two servings of this recipe, but you can make a ton of this soup using the beans made in the Instant Pot method!

Instructions

A few years ago on Facebook one of my friends (of limited cooking skills) asked the internet for a simple recipe to use a random can of black beans he'd found in his pantry. Our mutual friends delivered up a bunch of links to super fussy annoying recipes that gave me a headache reading (and I like to cook... and am pretty good at it too).  Predictably, my friend felt overwhelmed. Fortunately I posted this exact recipe on his page - he tried it and liked it.

I've been told it's fairly traditional, and I'm sure that there are very delicious very elaborate versions of it that my Cuban neighbor's granny made that are just amazing. However, if you've got these 5 ingredients handy, congrats, you're already 2/3 of your way towards a simple hearty soup that goes well with a big salad covered in chunks of ham, chicken, and cheese!

Ok! Add the entire contents of the can of beans to a small saucepan. If using home cooked beans, be sure to add plenty of juice - think "thick soup". Bring to a boil very briefly then bring it down to a simmer. Add 2-3 tablespoons of the white vinegar, the salt (if you're using canned beans, be careful, it's easy to make this too salty), and pepper. Stir and simmer for a few more minutes (I usually start mincing the onion during this part). Pour the beans mixture into 2 bowls and top with the finely minced onions.  YUM and easy.
