Black Bean and Butternut Squash Soup

  • Prep : 15 mins
  • Cooking : 35 mins
  • Serves : 8

Ingredients

Serves 8
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 poblano chiles, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1½ pounds butternut squash, peeled and cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 poblano chiles, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1½ pounds butternut squash, peeled and cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Directions

Step 1.

Heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion and poblanos and cook until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin, and oregano and cook for 1 minute.

Step 2.

Add the squash, beans, tomatoes (with juice), broth, chipotle powder, and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the squash is tender, 25 to 30 minutes.

Tip: To easily peel a whole butternut squash, prick it all over with a knife tip, then microwave it on high for about 2 minutes to soften the skin. Let cool slightly, then peel down to the orange flesh with a sharp vegetable peeler. To save time, buy prepeeled and chopped butternut squash from the produce aisle, or buy it frozen.
