    Black Bean Soup
    • Heat the water (or oil, if preferred) in a soup pot or large dutch oven over medium heat.
    • Stir in the onions and garlic, with a pinch of sea salt and pepper.
    • Then, cook, stirring occasionally until the onions are translucent.
    • Now stir in the jalapeño, carrot, red bell pepper, cumin, chili powder, and red pepper flakes.
    • Cook until vegetables are soft, about 7-9 minutes.
    • Pour in the beans and broth. Bring to a slow boil over medium-high heat then reduce to a gentle simmer.
    • Then, cook until the beans are soft and the broth has lots of flavors, about 20 minutes.
    • Turn off heat.
    • Using a hand immersion blender, blend about half of the soup, still leaving the whole beans intact.
    • Blend more for a smoother texture or less for a chunkier texture, depending on preference (this step is optional)
    • You can also blend half in a regular blender. But make sure to let out the steam, to prevent a soup explosion as it gets very hot. Then, pour it back into the soup pot.
    • Stir in lime juice and cilantro and taste test to see if it needs more salt or pepper. Adjust accordingly.
    • Serve with your favorite toppings!
    • Also, for an even heartier soup, add in brown rice or quinoa! (this step is optional).
