Remember: Add Soup Base to Taste!
If you’re in a rush, simply add contents to 8 cups of boiling water. Simmer and stir for 45 minutes or until desired texture of black beans. Simply add a can of pumpkin puree or freshly diced tomatoes, or clamato juice to taste. Of course, salt & pepper to taste.
If you have the time, saute’ a couple coarsely chopped celery stalks, 1 minced garlic clove, and fine diced onions. Cook until the onion is translucent and vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Bring to boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring frequently for 30-45 minutes.
Add any veggies you like - we suggest 2 cups fresh butternut squash!!! or a can of pumpkin puree. Add salsa or clamato to taste! Crush red chili peppers for heat! Salt and ground pepper to taste.
NOTE: There many variations of Squash out there! Should it be frozen, fresh or already cooked squash?
From frozen state-we would add directly into boiling water. From fresh-add in at the same time as the garlic, onions and celery. Or if it was already roasted or pre-cooked leftover squash or canned pumpkin-we would add at the last 5-10 minutes of cooking the soup.
Each type of squash whether acorn or butternut or pumpkin each have their very own level of sweetness so it really is a matter of taste. Just like salting a soup. These days we hopefully know to be a little more timid with salt and while it is a good idea to under-salt soup, salt is often just what a non-bold or may I say a flat tasting soup is lacking. Sometimes the same with sugar. So a little brown sugar can go along way. And of course, don’t forget the black pepper.
The idea is to have a healthy fast alternative to stewing all day to get pretty much the same result.
ADD water if too thick. Add fennel as final touch - to taste!
