Smoky Black Turtle Bean Soup

Serves 6 | Prep Time 15 minutes | Cook Time 1 hour 40 minutes


• 2 cups Eden Dried Black Beans

• 2 Tbsp Eden Extra Virgin Olive Oil

• 2 medium onions, chopped

• 3 cloves garlic, minced

• 1 medium jalapeno, seeded and diced

• 1 medium red, yellow or orange bell pepper, seeded and chopped

• 2 stalks celery, diced

• 1 Tbsp Eden Cumin

• 5 cups water

• 2 cups brewed coffee

• 2 whole bay leaves

• 1/4 cup Eden Bonito Flakes, crumbled, optional

• 1 tsp Eden Sea Salt

• 1/4 cup finely chopped scallions or parsley, for garnish


Sort, rinse and soak beans as box directs. Drain beans and discard soaking water. Heat oil in a soup pot and sauté the onions for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic, jalapeno, bell pepper, celery, and cumin. Sauté about 5 minutes. Add soaked beans, water, brewed coffee and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, skim off any foam that rises to the surface, and reduce the flame to medium-low. Cover and simmer about 1 1/2 hours until the beans are tender. Remove the bay leaves and add the sea salt. Cover and simmer another 10 minutes. Serve soup garnished with chopped scallions and a dollop of plain organic yogurt or sour cream, if desired.
