  • Ingredients
  • step-by-step directions
Black Bean Soup:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • 3 cloves garlic (peeled, chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 14- ounce cans black beans (rinsed, drained)
  • 1 14- ounce cans fire-roasted tomatoes (diced)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 5 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • hot sauce
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
Lime Shrimp:
  • 1 clove garlic (peeled, chopped)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 limes (zested and juiced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup parsley (chopped)
  • pinch Kosher salt
  • 16 jumbo shrimp, peeled, deveined, and butterflied
  • For the Black Bean Soup: In a large soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, cumin, chili powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir and cook for a few minutes, until the onions become tender, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Add the black beans to the onion mixture. Use a rubber spatula or potato masher to mash half the beans.
  • Stir in the tomatoes, heavy cream, and vegetable broth. Let the soup come to a boil. Once it's boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for about 11 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • For the Lime Shrimp: In a large bowl, combine the garlic with the olive oil, lime zest, crushed red pepper, parsley, and a sprinkle of salt. Add the shrimp to this mixture and toss them until they are coated; remove the shrimp.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook for 2 or 3 minutes. Flip the shrimp, add the lime juice, and cook for another few minutes, until the shrimp are opaque.
  • Add the hot sauce to the soup and adjust the salt and pepper to your taste. Ladle the soup into 4 bowls and top each with 4 shrimp.
  • Tip: Not a shellfish fan? Substitute your favorite protein, like chicken or steak!
