This soup really hits the spicy – hearty spot and goes great with salads.  It is more flavorful than plain tomato or black bean soup and quick and easy to make up.  Freeze some to have on hand for quick meals.

 For a chunkier soup, puree less but I would suggest this one tastes better if it’s smooth and thick.

Enjoy everyone, and have a safe weekend!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Simmer the Adzuki Beans in the 3 Qts. of water for about an hour. In a medium large stock pot, combine cooked beans, bean cooking water and all other ingredients. Bring to a boil and then reduce to medium heat. Cook for another 30 minutes to soften the Red Pepper.
  2. Carefully, transfer the soup into a food processor or blender and blend until smooth (or use an immersion blender right in the pot to puree the soup) I did mine in the blender in 3 parts so that I didn't get bean soup all over the kitchen) Blend until the soup is thick with small pieces of bean still showing.
  3. Makes about 2 1/2 Quarts. Freeze in sealed containers for up to 1 year.
