Delish. Made mine with a yellow bell if you see the photo. Flavor of the marinated rice is nice! We had extra rice left over. Thanks for sharing!

This soup was a hit with both my husband and I. We did not use the yogurt and cilantro which were optional. The apple cider vinegar gave it a nice tang.

As a confirmed black bean lover, I did love this soup--but then I am a cilantro lover too, so this was right up my alley. This has a nice level of heat, but doesn't burn, and a nice undercurrent of sour without overdoing it. I confess to using white rice (basmati) but otherwise I was faithful to the instructions. Good soup, Maito!

VERY NICE FLAVORFUL FILLING HEALTHY SOUP! I made half a recipe. I used the white wine vinegar option and veggie broth option. I used Trader Joe's precooked brown rice to make it easy. I omitted the jalapeno but added some red chile flakes, tabasco and salt. We enjoyed this with sour cream. Cilantro would have been perfect with it but I was out. This would probably be enhanced by a little bit of squeezed lemon or lime juice. Thanks for the recipe!

The cayenne and jalapenos give this a nice kick!
