    1. 1
      In a large pot,soak the beans in 2 quarts of cold water overnight, or in 2 quarts of boiling water for an hour or two.
    2. 2
      After soaking, or the next day, drain the beans and cover them with fresh water.
    3. 3
      Bring the beans to a boil over medium-high heat.
    4. 4
      Reduce the heat. You want the beans to simmer gently for most of the cooking process.
    5. 5
      Cover the pot and simmer the beans for an hour.
    6. 6
      Add more water, if needed, to keep the beans covered.
    7. 7
      Taste the beans after an hour and see if they are tender.
    8. 8
      If they are, then you can add the vegetables now; if not, let them cook another 30 minutes and try again.
    9. 9
      When the beans are perfectly tender add the vegetable oil, chopped vegetables and seasonings.
    10. 10
      Taste and add salt if you think it needs it.
    11. 11
      Put the lid back on and simmer the soup for another 30 minutes, or until the carrots are tender.
    12. 12
      The soup will be rich and dark with vibrant colors from the vegetables peeking through.
    13. 13
      When everything is tender, it's ready to serve.

      Made this today. I soaked the beans overnight. I was a little unsure about the carrots, and celery, but I think they make the soup. I used chicken bullion and cut down on the amount to reduce the sodium. Really good. Thank you.

      I made this tonight and it was really good. I followed the recipe except for using beef bouillon instead of the chicken. This had a really good flavor, and was really easy. Even my 5 yr old who "doesn't like soup" liked it as well my hubby who isn't crazy about black beans. This is a definite repeat. Thanks for posting!
