Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 (15.5 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 mango - peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1 banana, peeled and sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco™), or to taste
  • 1 (15 ounce) can light coconut milk
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, for garnish
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell peppers, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Place the olive oil in a deep, heavy pot, and heat over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion, garlic, and 1 red pepper; cook until onion is transparent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the black beans. Add the mango, banana, cumin, ginger, and hot pepper sauce; stir and cook until fruit softens. Pour in the coconut milk and vegetable broth. Bring soup mixture to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, and simmer until liquid reduces, about 1 hour. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Place soup in batches into a blender, and blend until smooth; or use a stick blender to blend in the soup pot. Serve garnished with dollops of sour cream and sprinkled with red bell pepper.
