Spicy Black Bean Soup

Phew, are we both happy this day is nearly over. Well not yet for Philip. He had a compromise on his work network which kept him rather busy and stressed most of the day and he’s going back to secure the network tonight. I also had a rather stressful day too, just one of those days I guess. I rode my bike this morning and of course got wet through since it rained again lol.

On to a happier note I only have a week and a half left of work since it will be the school summer holidays and I’m off! Yah for me. I will be able to dedicate a lot more time to cooking up some great summer recipes so stay tuned! For tonight’s dinner it was a great spicy black bean soup. Simple yet again and oh so yummy. It’s made with wholesome everyday ingredients, celery, carrots, tomatoes, onions and of course black beans.

I did use tinned black beans because I didn’t plan ahead and have time to soak the dried black beans. You are welcome to use them, you’ll need about four cups of cooked black beans.

When this soup was cooked I blended a third of the soup mixture in my Vitamix and returned it to the crock pot. If you like a more chunkier soup you can leave it as is.

I topped my soup with avocado slices and cilantro.
