    Default brazilian black bean soup

    brazilian black bean soup (adapted from francis moore lappe Diet for a small planet)

    this recipe is just an excuse to eat roasted garlic.

    sometimes when i make this i hold off on adding the caramelized onions and garlic, and orange juice until right before serving so as to not lose the aromatics.

    what makes this soup amazing is the cross between the toasty burned garlic and the orange juice. yum. you can roast the garlic in olive oil in the oven as well and use whole lot of whole cloves. ummmm.


    cooked black beans wth the juice (canned ok)
    olive oil
    onions , celery, carrots, sauteed in the olive oil
    large diced peeled sweet potato or yam (good use for leftover)(can of "sugary sam yams" works too)
    a LOT of crushed garlic
    green pepper, diced (optional)
    bay leaf
    pepper
    soy sauce (tamari is better)
    tomato paste
    large can of frozen orange juice concentrate

    cilantro for garnish

    in olive oil, saute onions until brown (like fajita onions) saute garlic until it gets that "almost burned" look. make sure all the caramelized fond gets into the beans. (deglaze the pan)

    add rest of veg, bay leaves, tomato paste, and beans to the crock pot. cook a while, add soy sauce (makes the soup rich and brown)and orange juice concentrate to taste. i like a lot. cook to blend seasoning. serve with raw cilantro on top. sometimes need to use a stick blender.

    Just curious - what are the amounts needed of each ingredient and cooking times/levels?

    Sounds very interesting and tasty but can't make it w/o the quantities.
