Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    cups dried black beans

  • 4 1/2

    cups water

  • 1

    medium onion chopped

  • 1

    large carrot chopped

  • 3

    bacon slices chopped

  • 5

    large fresh thyme sprigs

  • 3

    garlic cloves

  • 1

    bay leaf

  • 2 1/4

    teaspoons ground cumin

  • 2

    cups chicken stock or more if needed (or canned low-salt chicken broth)

  • 1/4

    cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • Salt to taste

  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste

Directions

Place beans in large bowl. Add enough cold water to cover beans by 3 inches and soak overnight. Drain beans; transfer to heavy large pot. Add 4 1/2 cups water and next 7 ingredients. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until beans are very tender, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Working in batches, puree black bean soup in blender with 2 cups chicken stock. Return soup to pot. Stir in chopped cilantro. (Soup can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.) Bring soup to simmer, thinning with additional chicken stock if necessary. Season to taste with salt and pepper. This recipe yields 4 servings.
