Panerea Bread Soup Instructions:

1.Soak black beans overnight or for at least eight hours.
2.Rinse beans thoroughly and place in Dutch oven. Cover with water. Bring beans just to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer. Continue to add water as needed to keep the water level just above the beans. Simmer until beans are tender. About 90 minutes.
3.When beans are tender, add the lime juice, cumin and garlic powder.
4.Sauté all minced vegetables in vegetable oil until barely tender. Cover vegetables with vegetable broth and simmer until vegetables are very tender.
5.Place vegetables with broth and 1/3 of black beans into a blender. Blend very well until the mixture is very smooth.
6.Pour vegetable/bean puree back into bean mixture and if necessary, add a more vegetable broth if mixture seems too thick.
7.If the soup is not to your thickness preference, mix cornstarch with equal parts cold water and mix with a spoon until well incorporated. Pour cornstarch/water mixture into bean soup, while simmering until the soup is the consistency you like.
8.Top with regular or vegan sour cream, for a special touch and enjoy! Best served with a delicious grilled cheese sandwich panera bread..enjoy it !

  2. This is by far the worst soup ever made. Please....anyone listening, do NOT make this....terrible. Absolutely awful. You're better off putting tap water in a bowl and eating it with a spoon.

    1. Justin - When looking at the directions, I could already tell that the beans would be flavorless. Sounds gross.

      Your comment was not only hilarious, but more than likely a good warning to heed...

  3. Black bean soup....have never ever heard of anything like this but its new and sounds interesting hence wish to try once.
