When it's cold and windy outside, there's nothing better than a pipping hot bowl of soup. This black bean soup hits the spot and the addition of sweet potato take it over the top. You could feel proud serving this to company or your friends on game day.
Finding ways to add beans to your diet is easy with so many wonderful recipes. As you may have heard, beans are eaten by every culture that are long-lived. Your gut bacteria love them and help you stay healthy so don't miss an opportunity to eat them every day. Dr Greger recommended 1/2 cup per day! Make them fresh in an Instant Pot or used canned.
Black beans are one of my favorites! And, you can easily make them yourself in the Instant Pot pressure cooker. Although the instructions that come with it are complicated, its' actually very easy to use. See how to make them in the Instant Pot here.

For this black bean soup recipe, I used leftover sweet potatoes from our Thanksgiving meal. I sauteed a few veggies, added the beans, some liquid, a little water, and vegetable broth. Then I pureed about 1/2 of the soup to make it creamy. This is delicious with a touch of sweetness from the sweet potatoes.
