Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium yellow onions, roughly chopped
  • 4 large garlic cloves, crushed and peeled
  • 2 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 5 cups low sodium chicken broth (I like Swanson)
  • 3/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1-3/4 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • Handful chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large soup pan. Add the onions, garlic cloves and carrots and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and translucent, about 8 minutes. Do not brown.
  2.  Add the black beans, chicken broth, oregano, coriander, cumin, cayenne pepper and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer gently for about 15 minutes.
  3.  Purée the soup using a hand-held immersion blender until very smooth and creamy. (Alternatively, you can use a standard blender to puree the soup in batches; see note.)
  4. Stir in the lime juice and season with salt and pepper to taste. Ladle the soup into bowls and top each bowl with a dollop of sour cream and freshly chopped cilantro.
  5. Wake-up the soup by squeezing fresh lime juice, tablespoon of sour cream and chucks of avocado on top to give it that finger-licking good finish.
