Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 60g (2 oz) onion, chopped
  • half a green pepper, seeded and chopped
  • four cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 6 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 1.8 litres (3 pints) chicken or vegetable stock
  • 140g (5 oz) dry black beans, rinsed and
  • soaked overnight, changing the water
  • several times
  • 1/2 tsp herbes de Provence
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • pinch cayenne pepper

 

Method

  1. In a large soup pot, heat the oil over a medium heat. Add the onion, pepper and garlic.
  2. Sauté for six minutes, stirring.
  3. Add 1 tbsp of the parsley, the stock, beans, herbs and spices. Bring to the boil. Simmer for 55 minutes or until the beans are tender, and crush easily against the side of the pan.
  4. Remove from the heat and let the soup cool until lukewarm.
  5. Pour into the blender and press the pulse pad until the beans begin to break up and give a chunky texture to the soup. Return to the pot and heat through to serve.
  6. Garnish each portion with the remaining parsley.
