Black Bean Slow Cooker Soup Recipe

I've been trying a lot of different soup recipes on my slow cooker. So far I love my Lentil Soup Recipe and my Butternut Squash Soup Recipe. Today I want to share another favorite: Black Bean Soup! 

It's really easy to make, as most of slow cooker recipes. You'll only need​ 7 ingredients and you're set!

3 cloves of garlic

1 large onion

2 medium carrots, grated

1 pound uncooked black beans

1 cup parsley

1/2 tablespoon cumin

8 cups vegetable broth

You really don't need to worry about neatly chopping everything, just chop into chunks, it's going to be cooking for a while and then blended, so there's no need to do that.

Place everything in the slow cooker pan​ and for me - I always use the slow cooker overnight - I turn it on high for about 2 hours (until it's time for me to go to bed) and then put it on low for the rest of the night (I usually sleep for around 6 1/2 to 7 hrs). It may seem a lot to you and compared to other recipes, but I like to really heat it in the beginning and then let it stay in a really really low simmer. I've tried the exact same recipe on low for the whole time and it didn't taste the same.

​Just blend it until it's creamy, add salt and pepper if you want {I usually don't need to do it, the broth adds enough salt to it} and adjust the thickness with a bit of boiling water.

I love this soup with a bit {okay, a lot} of cayenne pepper. I don't add it while in the slow cooker because then no one else would be able to eat it.​ I'm loving my slow cooker and if you're looking to find a really good one, you can find mine on Amazon UK - Morphy Richards Oval Slow Cooker 3.5 Litres* - or my future new slow cooker - for when I have a bigger place - on (it's bigger and it's programmable!) - Crock-Pot Programmable Touchscreen Slow Cooker 6.5-Quart*.

​Having a slow cooker really helps around the house. Nothing beats a home cooked meal!
