Eat the Rainbow Black Bean Soup


Ingredients
1 large onion chopped
1 jalapeno chile stemmed, chopped , seeded and finely diced (add more or less to taste)
1 yellow or red bell pepper chopped
2 medium carrots diced
3 cloves garlic minced
1 small red cabbage or 1/2 large cabbage, chopped
6 ounces mushrooms quartered
2 cans cooked black beans or 3 cups, rinsed and drained
1 tablespoon Mexican oregano or regular oregano
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4-1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder or for smokiness without heat use smoked paprika
1 tablespoon regular chili powder
generous grating of black pepper
1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
5 cups vegetable broth (or water plus 2 servings bouillon)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
4 cups chopped lettuce or spinach
salt to taste optional

Instructions
  1. In a large pot or pressure cooker, saute the onions until they soften. Add the peppers and carrots and cook for another two minutes. Add the garlic and remaining vegetables and cook for another two minutes.
  2. For regular cooking: Add all remaining ingredients EXCEPT lettuce and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer, and cook, covered, for about 30 minutes, adding additional water or vegetable broth as needed to keep a soupy consistency. Just before serving, stir in the lettuce and salt.
  3. For pressure cooking: Add all remaining ingredients EXCEPT lettuce and salt. Lock the lid in place and bring to high pressure. Cook at high pressure for 6 minutes, remove from heat, and allow pressure to come down naturally. (If pressure is not down after 15 minutes, use a quick-release method.) Just before serving, stir in the lettuce and salt.
  4. For slow cooking: Place sauteed vegetables and all remaining ingredients EXCEPT lettuce and salt into slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4-6 hours. Just before serving, stir in the lettuce and salt and add additional seasonings, if necessary.
