  • ½ lb. dried black beans, rinsed
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt (or more, to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon liquid smoke (optional)
  • Optional, for garnish: lime slices, sliced green onion, tortilla strips or chips, grated cheese, diced avocado, sour cream, fresh cilantro
  1. Place all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cover and cook until beans are tender – approximately 8 hours on LOW or 4-5 hours on HIGH.
  2. Discard bay leaf.
  3. Use a handheld immersion blender (or a regular blender) to puree the soup until it reaches desired consistency. You can puree all of the soup to make it smooth, or only puree about half of the soup if you like a chunkier texture. Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste. Ladle soup into individual bowls and garnish with desired toppings.
