Thèrè’s nothing bèttèr than a warming bowl of your favoritè soup on a cold, drèary night. Not thè kind of soup from a can, but thè èasy homèmadè kind that’s comforting and good for thè soul, with ènough lèftovèrs for days.

Hèllo, Spicy Vègan Black Bèan Soup. You havè bèèn a favoritè of minè sincè um, forèvèr?

Thè first bowl of Black Bèan Soup I èvèr had was from Panèra, way back in high school during my sènior yèar. How I rèmèmbèr that? I’m not surè ha. I wasn’t vègan thèn but lightly dabblèd with thè vègètarian thing on and off and also thè non-dairy thing hèrè and thèrè – èvèn back whèn almond milk was unhèard of and not as mainstrèam as it is now!

Back thèn (about 9 yèars ago… èèk) Panèra didn’t offèr many mèat-frèè or dairy-frèè options èXCèPT black bèan soup and a couplè salads, at lèast from what I rèmèmbèr. Now thèy havè a handful of vègan-frièndly options but I also rèmèmbèr choosing Black Bèan Soup bècausè it was low-fat and low-sodium but high in fibèr. Guèss I’vè always bèèn into nutrition.

It’s takèn mè a whilè to sharè this rècipè… mainly bècausè, whilè Black Bèan Soup is absolutèly DèLISH and comès with nutrition facts from thè nutrition gods, it’s not as photogènic or colorful as my Clèansing Dètox Soup, (a major hit hèrè on thè blog) or as vibrant as my rècipès in gènèral.

Don’t judgè a book by it’s covèr, right?!
