Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of this Creamy Creole Black Bean Soup. Slightly spicy and creamy, this soup will wake up almost any palate. Be sure to make more than you need, for this soup tends to disappear quite quickly.

      Hey thank you for this recipe! I added some cashews to make it a little creamier and used smoked paprika instead of paprika and it came out amazing I just had a question of how you got it to be the color it has in the pic? I blended 3/4 of the soup and added it back like u said and it came out a lot browner due to the black beans Did you add any food coloring by chance? Thank you!

        I am not sure if the cashews may have changed the colour, or because I blended only 1/4 of the soup since I do not like very thick soups. But the consistency is best if you blend 3/4 of the soup, it’s just my preference using only 1/4 of the soup which is what I used for the photo. If you want to add colour a little beet juice is good. I never use food colouring in my recipes. Thank you for your comment
