Delicious black bean soup topped with chopped grape tomatoes, plain yogurt, and fresh chives from my garden. Served alongside gluten-free brown rice crackers by Food Should Taste Good, purchased at Costco.

Quick and delicious, this gluten-free black bean soup makes a refreshing summertime meal.

A sweet friend brought a batch of this soup to me after my jaw surgery and I’ve been making it ever since. She shared the recipe with me from AllRecipes.com After making it a few times, I modified the recipe slightly by cutting back on the cumin and using chicken broth instead of veggie broth.

Summertime Black Bean Soup Recipe

Simply combine the following ingredients in a blender until fairly smooth (I used speed 4 on my Vitamix for approximately one minute):

–2 (15 oz) cans of black beans, rinsed and drained

–1 1/2 cups chicken broth

–1 cup chunky salsa

–1/2 tsp ground cumin

–Top with plain yogurt to substitute for sour cream, chives, tomatoes, black olives, or whatever you’d like!

Makes ~ five 8 oz. soup portions
