This soup tastes fabulous, is super simple to make, feeds a crowd, is nutritious and is made with wholesome ingredients, and is great to serve to people with food sensitivities (it’s Vegan, Clean Eating, nut-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and peanut-free), and most importantly everyone LOVES it!


  • 4 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 4 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2-3 tsp Real salt * (I like to start with 2 tsp and add as needed)
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • Juice of 1 lemon


  1. In a large pot melt the coconut oil and add the pepper, onion, carrots, celery, and garlic
  2. Saute until vegetables are tender crisp (add 1-2 Tbsp of water if needed to the pot)
  3. Add cooked vegetables, 4 cups water, and half of the beans to a blender
  4. Blend until smooth and return content to the large pot
  5. Add the remaining beans, cumin, salt, chili powder, and lemon juice to the pot
