Moosewood: Black Bean Soup

The very first vegetarian cookbook I ever owned is Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home.  My sister gave it to me soon after my husband and I went vegetarian in 2003.  The first recipe that I made from it is on the very first page of the book, a simple, ridiculously easy black bean soup.

I’ve been making this soup on a regular basis every since.  I can get it on the table in less than 30 minutes from the time I start chopping the onion, and every single member of the family loves it!  Tonight I served it with some guacamole, salsa, cilantro, warm corn tortillas, and roasted cauliflower.

Freshly made guacamole is so delicious, and I have the perfect cheater recipe.  Mash up 2 avocados, add 2-3 Tbsp fresh salsa, and salt to taste.  Done!

  1. Hmmmm… This post is a great reminder for me to dig out my copy of the Moosewood cookbook. Sometimes I get stuck trying recipes from my new cookbooks and forget to haul out the good “old” ones I have.

  2. This was one of my first veg books, too! My kids love the African Pineapple Peanut Stew (I reduce the Tabasco and add in some canned coconut milk, though). I love the Moosewood collection – I have several of their books. I haven’t tried this recipe, but now that I see the picture I am so gonna! Btw, I think just about every vegetable tastes better roasted!
