Ingredients

  • 2 cups carrots sliced
  • 1 sweet potato large, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 cup green beans fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 onion small, diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 30 ounces black beans cans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • kosher or sea salt to taste
  • 2 cups vegetable juice no sugar added
  • 2 cups vegetable broth low-sodium

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker, cover and cook on low 6-8 hours, or until veggies are tender. Add a tablespoon of reduced-fat cheddar cheese, if desired.
  • To make this even more of a Superfood Soup, add 2 cups coarsely chopped kale the last 5 minutes of cooking, or until wilted.

If you prefer a less subtle onion and garlic taste, saute onion in 1 tablespoon olive oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute 1 additional minute. Add to slow cooker along with other ingredients.

  1. I've recently been tested again for allergies–sadly tomatoes have showed up again–how can I adapt this recipe to leave out tomatoes? thx!

  2. Stumbled upon this yesterday. It's in the crockpot now! Adding spicy hot Italian sausage and packaging into individual freezer containers to take to work. My co workers are going to be so jealous of my lunches! This is my new favorite website. Thank you.

  3. I was a little nervous about the sweet potato, but this soup is delicious!! I think I actually think I will change any other stew/soup recipe to adapt for sweet potato:) Thank you so much for posting!!

  4. Unfortunately, 6-8 hours does not work for our schedule, as we are usually gone for 10 or so hours for work during the day. Can I cook on high for 4-6 hours (or do you have a suggested time on high) or would that ruin it?

    1. Yes, but you should check the chili powder, canned beans, broth, and juice to ensure that additives with gluten are not in the ingredients. Particularly, you might want to check that the chili powder brand is gluten free.

  5. Need a reduced carb version. I guess taking out the black beans and potato and adding some protein, like chicken, would do it.

  6. Thank you for your time and sacrifice to post these recipes. You have helped me to look forward to cooking once again and healthy.

  7. what is a good substitute for the vegetable juice? I don't keep that around .,. I tried searching the web but they just tell me how to make the stuff. I may just throw in some tomatoes

  8. This is one of my new favorite recipes! It's one of the first things I decided to make in my first crockpot, and what a great decision that was! I like it best with kale, and you can even throw some other things into it, such as corn and chickpeas, and it still turns out just as great. I see suggestions to add meat, and I think that sounds like it would be delicious. I can see shredded chicken pairing very well with all of the veggies in the soup. It ends up sweeter than I'd prefer – I guess from the sweet potato – but it's still absolutely yummy! I think that it has a unique flavor, and after recommending it to several other people, it's become a big hit elsewhere, too!

  9. The recipes that I have looked at all say a serving size is 1 cup, 1 cup will not fill me up. The recipes calories were low but most recipe will be lowered if only 1 cup is consumed. If the recipe is in the 300s and you add a salad and a whole grain product it would make the complete meal a hefty calorie count. Just saying.

    1. Thanks for your comment, Pam. We believe that consuming appropriate serving sizes is important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This does not mean going hungry. Here are our recommendations on portion size https://skinnyms.com/what-is-a-portion-size/ and some tips to help you adjust https://skinnyms.com/8-easy-tips-for-controlling-portion-sizes/. In addition, it is important to note that not all calories are created equal. Eating a high-calorie meal of 100% clean foods is far better for our bodies than eating a low-calorie meal consisting of processed ingredients and empty calories. If you finish a meal and find yourself still hungry after 15-20 minutes, it is perfectly fine to munch on clean and healthy options until you are no longer hungry.

    2. Pam, you could always add another protein to help fill you up. clean, certified organic chicken or turkey might help you feel “fuller.”

    1. Katy, I think peas are a great option to green beans. Just add frozen peas about 10 minutes before turn off the slow cooker. πŸ™‚

  10. Just a wonderful recipe!! My busy season at work lasts for 2 1/2 months and I do not get to exercise so I have to modify my calorie intake during that period. This is tasty and extremely satisfying. Thanks for a great addition to my rotation!!

    1. Cabbage does not have the same nutrients as kale. If you’re ok with this you can definitely substitute cabbage for kale!

    1. Bri, It definitely freezes well. I add this and most other soups and stews to mason jars when freezing. Just be sure not to over fill the jars or they may burst. πŸ™‚

      Also allow the soup to cool down before placing in the freezer.

  11. Just made tonight…. did 1/2 the sweet potato only because the rest of my family doesn’t like sweet potato. Also did boneless breast chicken vs. beans (again since my family prefers chicken over beans). Added about 4 cloves garlic and more carrots and green beans. I think I would do 1/2 the chicken and 1 can of Bush’s Black Bean Fiesta next time to add a little more kick. Was quite good and will make again!

  12. I love this recipe and have been using it for the last few years. I just got an Instant Pot. Have you adapted the recipe for the Instant Pot? Thank you!

    1. Hi Carolyn, for the Instant Pot you can follow the instructions as directed. Instead, cook in the Instant Pot for 45 minutes on low pressure.

  13. I tracked this on the WW app and says it is 5 points but you say 1. Can you help me out with this? Is it really 1 point?
    I love love love this soup – was so delicious

    1. Hi Janet – I just double checked and the one point is correct. There are a lot of zero point items in this recipe, including the black beans.
