Instructions
  1. Soak black beans in water for a few hours or overnight. Strain off the soaking water. Place beans in a pot, cover with lots of water; bring to boil, then reduce to a simmer for 1 ½ hours until beans are tender and barely covered with water.
  2. In a stock-pot; sauté olive oil, celery, capsicum and leeks for 5 minutes. Add crushed garlic, sauté for another 5 minutes. Add dried herbs, stir for 2 minutes until fragrant.
  3. To the stock-pot, add cooked black beans and cooking water, stock, tomatoes, citrus juices, tamari/soy sauce and salt. Stir well. Simmer for 15-20 minutes to combine flavors. Taste, add more tamari/soy sauce if needed. Enjoy.
  4. (optional: at this stage you can blend 1/3 of the soup, returning it to the remainder of the pot if you prefer a smoother thicker soup texture)
  5. This recipe can be made gluten-free by using tamari and gluten-free stock/stock-cubes.
