Mexican Black Bean Soup - ready to eat.

Black Beans are a key store cupboard ingredient for me. I use them all the time. Mostly to make my favourite gluten-free, vegan recipes over and over again. But I do like to branch out sometimes. So, I have pulled together Four Delicious Black Bean Recipes.

What are Black Beans???

Now, I need to be clear that we are talking about black beans (AKA turtle beans) which are a staple of Latin American and Mexican cooking. Black beans are used in chillies, as a filling for wraps and sometimes blended to a refried bean paste (with pinto beans) for nachos.

I also use a lot of fermented (or salted) black beans – for example when I cook Tofu and Green Peppers in Black Bean Sauce. These fermented black beans are in-fact fermented soya beans – they turn a really dark colour after being fermented. They are amazing!! But in a different way to Latin American black beans (AKA turtle beans).

Four Delicious Black Bean Recipes

So, sticking with the Latin American black bean I have Four Delicious Black Bean Recipes to share with you. All totally Gluten-Free | Vegan | Allergy-Friendly | Seasonal …and… onion-free, garlic-free and coconut-free.

I hope you like!!!

Mexican Black Bean Soup is the most delicious, deeply flavoured, nutritious soup you can wish for. It takes a little time to cook but is well worth the wait. I adore the fresh lime added at the end.
