Black bean soup sounded really good for a typical cold Berkeley July day. I searched for my favorite recipe, the spicy black bean soup with cumin and jalapeño first shared in 2005.
Having gotten a little more adventuresome in the kitchen since then, I offer you Black Bean Soup v 1.1.
Many of the ingredients can be found at your local farmers’ market. I added some ingredients and mostly just doubled some of the others from the original recipe.
