  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 stalks of celery, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano

Step 1

In large pot, heat olive oil over medium-high. Add onion, celery and bell pepper to pan. Cook until vegetables, are tender 6-8 minutes, adding garlic halfway through and stirring occasionally. Add oregano, cumin and cayenne, and stir for one minute. Add vegetable broth.

Bring broth to a medium simmer. Let cook, uncovered, for 8 minutes. Add entire contents of both cans of beans, and season with salt, to taste. Return to a simmer, and cook uncovered for 10-12 minutes, or until broth reduces to desired consistency.

Transfer half of the contents in pan to a blender/food processor. Puree until smooth. Return to pan.

Stir in cilantro and then remove from heat. Serve topped with avocado and a dollop of yogurt/sour cream.
