Savory 3-Ingredient Black Bean Soup Recipe Is Ready In 15 Minutes

This time of year, there's nothing more soothing than soup. I absolutely love soup and eat it year 'round. To be honest, though, I seldom make homemade soup. I decided that I needed to change that. Considering grocery prices, restaurant prices and that fact that homemade is just better, I figured it was time to find some soup recipes that I thought I could handle.

This three-ingredient black bean soup recipe checks all the boxes for me: it’s quick, delicious, customizable and about as easy as it gets. Here are the easy, gluten-free ingredients you will need to make this savory Mexican-inspired soup: black beans, chicken broth and diced tomatoes. That's it! And best of all, this delicious recipe is ready in just about 15 minutes. Wow!

Check out the suggestions below for how to customize it to your liking, such as how to make it vegan, how to make it spicier and lower in sodium. Be sure to serve this delicious soup for lunch or dinner with your toppings of choice (see Recipe Notes for ideas)!
