Yields8 cups


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot. Saute the onions in the oil over medium-low heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour in the vegetable broth, sweet potatoes, and cumin. Boil until sweet potatoes are tender and easily cut with a fork, about 15 minutes. Take off heat and allow to cool slightly.
  3. Puree sweet potato mixture and black beans in a food processor. You may have to add extra water to make less thick. Work in batches to get a smooth puree if necessary.
  4. Pour soup back into the pot, reheat on low and season with salt and pepper.

It looks terrible - like orange mashed muck. Definitely not soup. Maybe you just need a better pic.
