"This sounds like a really good black bean soup...though I love most ALL black bean soup! I'll update once I've tried it. I'm posting this for ZWT 4. This is a recipe I got by Cinda Sanners from her "Soup Buffet" show."
Serving Size: 1 (1051 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"This soup has tons of flavor. The flavor is even better when reheated the next day. Most black bean soups have the predominent cumin and coriander taste. This one has those flavors plus so many other as well.... and they all play nicely together. A cool dallop of light sour cream is a great garnish for serving. Thanx for posting!"
"This a really good soup. I halved the cayenne pepper, and it was still fairly spicy. I also subbed celery seed and 1/4 tsp of salt for the celery salt, since I didn't have any. I topped this with cilantro and squeezed lime and lemon over it at the table, and that definitely brightened up all the flavors. Served 4 as an entree. Here is my video of the soup being made: http://www.recipezaar.com/sitenews/post.php?pid=944&pn=1&pageref=Photo_Video-927138&vw_arrange_order=DESC&vw_sort_order=MOST_RECENT"
"Really great combo of flavors! I made a few adjustments in using a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes, adding some chipotle pepper and cilantro soup base but the overall combo of seasonings in this reacipe give it a fresh light taste!"
"Yum, this is definitely a keeper. I love the blend of spices. It is a wonderful variation on black bean soup. I omitted the salt and added a little water because I like to rinse my beans before use to get rid of the excess sodium, so I didn't have any canned liquid to add. I garnished with sour cream, chopped parsley, and a little bit of 4 cheese blend. Excellent! Thank you for sharing!"
"Lovely soup. The seasonings were just right. The only thing I did differently was add a little corn. I served it over rice, topped it with sour cream and had tortilla chips alongside. Thanks for posting!"
"Delicious! Wow...we loved the spices in this quick and easy soup. I made a half recipe as there was only two of us eating, but I kept the written amounts of garlic and ginger. Also, I used chicken stock because that is what I had on hand. I served this topped with Mexican 4-blend cheese, sour cream, and chopped fresh cilantro. Thank you for sharing this fabulous recipe...it is definitely a keeper! *Made for ZWT4*"
"I loved this soup. I used 3 19 oz cans of beans and followed the recipe as written. I served it with a dollop of plain yogurt. The flavour of the spice mixture was interesting. It had just the right amount of heat from the cayenne. Made for ZWT4 Family Picks."
"Good?? No way, this was great! I've never tasted any black bean soup like this. I served with recipe#232389 which complemented this dish very nicely. DH said 'I really like this soup, you're making this soup again!' Wow, he doesn't usually have much of a say in what we're going to eat... Other reviewers noted that it was spicy, but I think I'd call it spiced because I didn't feel that it was overly hot, but the flavors were intense and very unique! I didn't have coriander powder, so I used dried cilantro leaves. Made for ZWT4."
"FANTASTIC! I made a half recipe with 1 can of beans and extra veggies. I also used coconut oil and sauteed the spices with the veggies the last couple of minutes before adding the beans and broth. I subbed black pepper for the cayenne. This smells and tastes WONDERFUL and it's good for you too! Made for the ZWT4 -Jefes"
"We really enjoyed this wonderful soup. I have not had much Costa Rican food, but if it's all like this, I'm a big fan. It was spicy but not too spicy. All of the spices were so good together. Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers."
"This soup is worthy of more then 5 stars! We love Costa Rican food and this soup brought us back to our favorite country. The flavors are so typically Costa Rican it was surprising! The combination of spices was much like their famous Lizano sauce. We sopped up every last bit of the soup and I wished that I had not changed the servings to 4! Pura Vida! Thank you for posting. Zaar World Tour 4. Whine and Cheese."
"OOOh Yum! The spices in this make this black bean soup into something very special. I used chicken stock because it is what I had on hand and otherwise followed the directions. My DBF got into this even before I added the beans, because he thought it was finished. LOL- He enjoyed it both ways! I noticed my 15 oz can held 1 1/2 cups of beans and liquid, but because my dbf ate half of the soup early- I wasn't exactly sure how many beans to add - I just eyeballed it. I'm sure I'll be making this one again. Made for ZWT 4 by a fellow Jefe!"
"A total 5 stars from us on this recipe. Firstly, it was super (no pun intended) easy to make but it also tasted wonderful. It was full of spice but not really spicy which is just how I like things. It was also very lot fat and vegetarian which just ticks so many boxes for us. The only changes I made was to cut the recipe in half since there are only two of us (we like meals that are just huge bowls of soup now and then) and I used a can of chopped tomatoes with the juice instead of the fresh tomatoes. Made for ZWT4."
