Spicy Black Bean Soup

Spicy Black Bean Soup is the perfect vegan soup to add some heat to a cold day. This soup is packed with veggies and Mexican spices that warm you up from the inside out. I like to top my Spicy Black Bean Soup with avocado to add a cooling element and crumbled corn chips for crunch.

Health Benefits of Black Beans

Black beans are the vegan source of protein in my Spicy Black Bean Soup. Black beans have a mild earthy flavour and are bursting with nutrients and health benefits.

  • Black beans have a dark coat that is high in antioxidants which help repair free radical damage
  • Black beans are very high in dietary fiber which helps reduce cholesterol
  • Black beans are perfect for heart health because they contain folic acid which lowers homocysteine levels in the blood
  • Black beans are high in protein and soluble fiber which will give you lots of energy while keeping your blood sugar stable.
  • Black bean also contain iron which is important for oxygen transport throughout the body
