I love my crock pot. Do you? Crock pot meals are so easy. Throw everything in, turn on and walk away. I try to make everything I can in the crock pot. Especially soups. This black bean soup is no exception. I already have a white bean soup on the blog, so I thought it was about time to add a crock pot black bean soup to the mix.
I just love the way a slow cooker brings out so much flavor in soup. This slow cooker black bean soup has a very small list of ingredients, but it’s so flavorful. I highly suggest topping this black bean soup with some avocado like a did in the picture. Delish!
An easy one pot meal your family will love!
- 4 cups black beans (soaked overnight, rinsed and drained)
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 1 yellow onion diced
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 3 garlic cloves diced
- Salt to taste
- Put all ingredients in the crock pot.
- Cook on high for the first hour.
- After the first hour, turn down to low and continue to cook for 3-4 hours.
If you want to cook the soup in less time, you can keep it on high. However, I think the longer a soup cooks, the better the flavor gets. If you are using dried beans, there is no need to boil them prior to using if you plan to cook the soup all day. If you want to cook the soup in a short amount of time, you will need to boil the beans first. That will ensure they get soft enough. Enjoy!
