Black Bean and Rice Soup is a simple recipe made with black beans, celery, onions, vegetable stock, and steamed rice. Simple, flavorful and very filling! Plus, it’s a convenient and inexpensive meal when you need one. Just a few staple ingredients needed to make this into a fabulous meal!
Black Bean and Rice Soup is a hearty soup and one that offers a rich and thick texture leaving you to think it’s a stew. But don’t be fooled. It’s easily prepared as a soup. Mostly nutritious and delicious, you’ll be amazed at how fast you can make this and have dinner ready in minutes!
Black beans have plenty of protein and fiber, leaving you full longer, while the rice adds a velvety texture to it. Rice is a great source of complex carbohydrates which gives us the energy we need.
The healthier choice would be brown rice, but I prefer using white rice with my soups.
This dish is so filling, I didn’t need to make anything else. It’s a meal all alone, and it’s perfect for those meatless Mondays.
I used organic black beans and simmered the soup with a few ingredients for about 20 minutes. And, while I was simmering the soup, I also steamed one cup of white rice, adding it to the soup at the very last minute.
Very easy to make. No need to use a pressure cooker or crockpot with this recipe. As a quick meal, it will surely become everyone’s favorite, especially my vegetarian friends.
Always a good idea to have a few cans of organic black beans and rice in your pantry. You never know when you may need to make a quick meal or run out of food. And, that usually happens in my home, by the end of the week.
A great recipe for you to try. We like to call this one – a bowl of health!
