It’s here! It’s HERE! The start of epic holiday spreads and all the comfort food dinners while we’re tucked safely inside our homes cozy and WARM. 

I love this season so much for many reasons, but let’s be honest, mostly because of the food 😝

Once November hits it’s game over for me and comfort food. It’s like this gravitational pull that starts between my kitchen and all things warm and delicious and filling. 

And Thanksgiving always brings that truth to life in the most real way. The mashed potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, etc etc etc, just steal the comfort food spotlight!

And since it’s been dropping into the 30’s this week in Seattle, we might as well embrace those vibes by relishing in the warmth of our kitchens and eating all of the coziest foods.

Alllllrighty. Happy Friday, friends! The weekend has arrived once again. Let’s get down to business and talk black bean soup! The BEST vegan black bean soup to be specific.

I get it. Black bean soup is not exactly a revolutionary recipe. Nothing crazy or super out of the box here. But this one is very good. I wouldn’t call it the best if I didn’t mean it.

Of course that is just my opinion but we’ve been doing this long enough that I think you’ve got some level of trust in me 😉

I’ve been making this soup sort of on the fly for the last handful of years and it never gets old. Always quick, easy, healthy and filling! Basically everything you could ever want from a black bean soup.

And now, I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news.

I would ask you which one you want first, but since we can’t really do that I’m just gonna go good news first.

Good news: you can make the best vegan black bean soup for your people after reading this post!

The bad news: These pictures kind of make me cringe. But I’m hoping you guys have a more forgiving opinion of my photography than I do. Or at least don’t judge the quality of my recipes by the quality of my photographs 😝
