Black bean soup (by Karl)
Posted in : Main Dish, Soup on by : Maya Tags: bacon, black beans, sour cream
This is one of Karl’s (many) specials. Perfect for the autumn weather we are having now (rain, rain, rain and some more rain…). Quick prepping but it helps if you let it simmer for a while.
Black bean soup
- 3 onions, chopped
- Smoked bacon, chopped, 300g
- 2 cups (500ml) stock beef
- a large can of black beans (800g)
- 2 table spoons butter
- Heat up a large pot. Melt the butter. Add the onions and cook until translucent.
- Add bacon and cook some more.
- Add the beef stock and beans (with the juice from the can), let it cook at least an hour, ideally 4 hours.
- Just before serving blend it until more (or less) smooth.
- Serve with sour cream and fresh bread.
