Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

Lunch couldn’t come soon enough today. I was hungry, yes; but I was more excited than anything else to dig back into my leftovers of last night’s Pumpkin Black Bean Soup.


Oddly enough, I actually found this recipe last week while looking through some things on the 10lb. Slimdown Xtreme DVD set. Of course, when I went to look for it today, I couldn’t find it anywhere (if anyone else does find it, please let me know so I can link to it!).

Luckily, I printed it out for myself, so I’ll give you my recipe, which is pretty similar to that one.


I even made sure to consult my own notes on how to write a better recipe for typing this one out. Winking smile


I paired my nice, warm bowl of soup this afternoon with a toasted English muffin topped with some butter, which made for a perfect meal on this cool, dreary day.

    That looks so good.. I’ve been wanting to use the black beans in the pantry for a while but I haven’t been able to think of anything new to make with them. This is definitely on the list for next week, thanks for posting this!

    I just have to say I LOVE the halloween treats. If I had the facilities to host a little Halloweenie party, I’d host the HECK out of one and put sour cream spider webs on EVERYTHING in sight! (which I’m sure could get a little gross depending on what I was adding it to, but whatever, it’s my party and I’ll be gross if I want to.)

    Looks very yummy and I am definitely making this soup for my friend and I for lunch tomorrow. What do you think about adding ditalini into the soup? If so, how much and etc? Thanks!

    Kinda disappointed every time I hit the pumpkin beer it brings me to the pumpkin bean soup tried several times I want to see pumpkin beer not the soup

    He’s so good we can even forgive him for bringing ‘pukka’ into the English vocabulary.
    It’s our job at the cooking college at which I teach to examine how food reacts
    under different exposures to heat. Bright Hub has a short series on desktop publishing explained,
    if you want to see some of the definitions of common terminology and understand what desktop publishing can do,
    and what you can do with it.
