  • 1/2 cup black beans dry, rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 yellow onion small and diced
  • 3 cups vegetable broth low sodium
  • 15 ounces canned tomato sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup cilantro freshly chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cumin ground
  • 1 cup light coconut milk canned, optional: regular milk, whole or low-fat
  • kosher or sea salt and black pepper to taste


  • Add dry beans and 2 cups water to a saucepan, cover and soak overnight. Drain and rinse before adding to slow cooker.
  • In a medium skillet, heat oil to medium-low and saute onion until tender, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and saute one additional minute. Add onion and garlic to slow cooker along with black beans, broth, tomato sauce, water, cilantro and cumin, stir.
  • Cook on low for 8-10 hours. It's done when the beans are tender. Add the remaining ingredients, stir and cook an additional 15 minutes. If preferred, use an immersion blender to make a creamier soup. We prefer the black beans whole.

    1. Julie – You can add canned beans instead of dry with no problem. You probably won't need to cook it as long, but you can add any amount of beans you'd like to have. Hope you enjoy it.

  1. What if you have a larger crock pot, could you still make this recipe? How would you need to alter the recipe to accomodate the larger crock pot?

    1. Kristine, I would double the recipe for a large size slow cooker, or at least make 1 and 1/2 of the recipe.
