Default Black Bean Soup

Here is a recipe that is super easy I found- haven't tried it yet but going to make it tomorrow!

Black bean soup

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 yellow onion
1 green bell pepper
7 cloves of garlic
1 pound dry black beans(sorted and soaked for at least 4 hours)
5 cups water
3 cup vegetable broth
1 - 7 oz can diced green chiles
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 bay leaves

optional for garnish:
rf sour cream
red bell pepper, diced
white onion, diced
fresh cilantro, finely chopped

Add olive oil to the crock pot and turn on highest setting. Chop yellow onion and stir into the olive oil. Cover and let cook while you chop the green bell pepper into 1 inch chunks. Stir in green bell pepper. Using a garlic press, crush garlic cloves directly into the crock pot. Stir and cover. Rinse black beans in a colander. Add to crock pot along with water, broth, chilies, cumin, thyme, salt, pepper, and bay leaves. Cover and cook on high for at least 8 hours. Before serving, remove bay leaves and then partially puree soup with a hand mixer or submersible hand held blender. Mix until thick, but still with chunks of beans, onions and peppers visible.
