Black Bean Salsa Soup

Today in Happy Herbivore Series:

When I need to cook and I don’t want to make anything elaborate, this recipe is the perfect fix! Only a few ingredients, super fast prep time, and delicious too! Healthy? Well, it’s okay health wise.

We went through pretty much all of the black bean soup (different recipe) that I made the other day so I decided to make this tonight when my husband got home from work.

These are the only ingredients needed, minus that bag of paprika. For some reason I thought I needed that and I took the photo before looking at the recipe so let’s just ignore it. Inside the greek yogurt container are black beans that I cooked using my awesome instant pot (I will make a post about this someday, I love that thing). You can also add a dash of hot sauce to this recipe, but I don’t have any hot sauce so we do without.

Mix of vegetable broth (sugar free of course!), salsa (also sugar free and the hot variety), black beans, and cumin. Yum yum! I use my nutribullet to mix it up. This is my only blender, except if you count my food processor.

Blended up! Time to pour it in a pan.

Add thawed corn and more black beans.

Stir it up and let it warm up!

And serve. I like to top mine with avocado and trader joe’s baked fat free blue tortilla chips. Good stuff. It was REALLY hot. So I had to let it sit there for a while cooling down. Make sure you let it cool before serving!

Products I used/recommend:

A nutribullet! I bought mine about 2.5 years ago. I’m not sure they sell it anymore.

NutriBullet 8-Piece Blender, Gray (Certified Refurbished)

This one is actually selling for pretty cheap. Yeah, it’s refurbished but I’m sure it works fine. If I were replacing my nutribullet I’d buy this one. My mother in law has a nutribullet too and she uses it every morning for her wheat grass green juices. My older sister has a vitamix, which admittedly looks awesome, but my husband and I like to be frugal.

Other than that, I didn’t really use anything special for this recipe. I might make more posts in the future about what else I make with my nutribullet. It’s pretty diverse.

Anyway! I hope these posts give you a better idea about what you can cook with the Happy Herbivore book and how easy vegan meals can be. Until next time!
