Black Bean Soup


2 cans black beans

3 cups vegetable broth

1 red onion, diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 T cumin

1 T smoked paprika

1/8 tsp merken

salt and pepper, to taste

Saute the diced red onion in some olive oil until slightly carmelized, then add the garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 1 minute, or until the garlic is fragrant. Be careful not to burn. Add the spices and stir for another minute, then add the beans and the broth. Heat through and allow to simmer for about 15-20 mins to allow the flavors to come together. Puree about 2/3 of the soup in a blender and then add back to the pot. Top with diced avocado, artichoke hearts, and fire roasted red pepper pesto if desired.
