Recipe: Black Bean Soup

Time execution: 50 min

Can be served for: 4 persons


  • 3 stalks celery, chopped

  • 2 carrot, chopped

  • 2 onion, chopped

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 3 teaspoons dried oregano

  • 2 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 2/3 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 2 (24-ounce) can diced tomatoes

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

  • Serving suggestion: Cubano Sandwiches, recipe follows


  1. Cook the celery, carrot and onion in the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the oregano, cumin, red pepper flakes, celery seeds and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add the black beans, bouillon, bay leaf and tomatoes, then add enough water to cover by an inch or two (about 4 cups).

  2. Bring to a simmer and cook at least 40 minutes and up to 3 hours, adding more water if the soup is too thick; remove the bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Serve with Cubano Sandwiches.

  4. Split open and quarter 2 loaf French bread. Mix 3 tablespoons each mayonnaise and dijon mustard and spread on the bread. Sandwich with sliced Swiss cheese, deli-style ham, roast pork, pickles and more cheese. Butter the sandwiches, then cook in a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, pressing with a heavy skillet, 3 minutes. Flip, reduce the heat to medium low and cook, pressing, until golden, 2 more minute.
