Introducing a hearty, wholesome, and flavorful meal that’s perfect for any season – our Black Bean Soup loaded with veggies! This soup is not only packed with taste but also loaded with nutrients, making it a fantastic choice for a healthy and satisfying meal all on it’s own.

What sets this black bean soup apart is its innovative approach to achieving that desired creaminess. Instead of relying on heavy creams or dairy products to thicken the soup, we’re taking a health-conscious and plant-based route. By simply blending some of the beans and the savory broth, which includes the Edward & Sons No-Chick’n Bouillon, we create a thickness that adds depth and body to the soup. This method provides the lush texture you crave without the need for added fats or calories.

And, by using the beans to thicken the soup, we’re enhancing its nutrient content as well, enriching it with additional fiber and protein.

Top it with jalapenos, cilantro, avocado, crushed crackers, and/or vegan cheese
