Home » Recipe Swap » Spicy Black Bean Soup

Cooking Time: 40 minutes    Serves: 6-8

The earthy flavors of this Mediterranean-inspired soup, including a touch of cumin, will make you wish you ate like this every day. Adjust the spice to your liking, hot or mild, and enjoy this soup with great artisan bread and a cool side salad.

Tip: To save time this soup can be made with canned beans.


  • 1 cup of dried black beans (soak overnight & drain)
  • 1 cup dried kidney beans (soak overnight & drain)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 6 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup of good-quality red drinking wine
  • 6 cups Manischewitz® Beef Broth
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish


In 2 separate pots, bring the black beans and kidney beans to a boil in water. Add a bay leaf to each pot. Boil both beans for 10 minutes, bring them down to a simmer, and cook for an additional 20 minutes.

Add 3 tablespoons of kosher salt to each pot of beans and continue simmering for another 30 minutes or until the beans are tender. Drain and remove bay leaves.

In a large pot, heat the olive oil and add the carrots, onion, celery, garlic, cumin, cayenne and oregano. Cook over low heat for 8-10 minutes.

Add the wine and the Manischewitz® Beef Broth and stir. Add all of the cooked beans to the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for another 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove more than half of the soup and add to a blender. Pureé until smooth, then return to the pot and mix to combine.

To serve, ladle into bowl and garnish with fresh cilantro.
