Ian Somerhalder Cocoa Black Bean Soup Recipe

Prep
Cook
Serves 10people
Ingredients
2
tbsp of olive oil
1
red onion (diced)
3
bay leaves
Half a teaspoon of sea salt
2
stalks of celery (finely chopped)
2
carrots (peeled and grated coarsely)
1
green bell pepper (chopped finely)
1
cup of tomato purée
2
vegetable bouillon cubes
4
cups of water
1
can of black beans (rinsed and drained)
2
tbsp of cocoa mixed with water to a paste
Half a teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
Quarter of a teaspoon of smoked paprika
1
cup coarsely chopped fresh flat parsley
Directions
1.
Heat the oil in a large pot and add the onion, bay leaves, and salt. Cook until the onions are softened, then add the celery, carrots, and green pepper, and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until all vegetables are softened (about 10 minutes over medium heat). Add the tomato purée, bouillon cubes, and water and bring to a boil, then reduce your heat to maintain a simmer and cook for about 15 minutes, or until vegetables are very tender. Stir in beans, cocoa (which adds an exotic note that melds beautifully with the black beans’ deep flavour and creamy texture) pepper, and paprika and return to a simmer for about five minutes.
