Cook:

2 Hr 30 Min

Ingredients

2 c
dried black beans, soaked overnight
8 c
water
2
medium onions, chopped
2
garlic cloves, smashed & minced
1
inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
1 Tbsp
ground cumin
2 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
ground cardamom
1 tsp
ground coriander
1
14 ounce can light coconut milk
1/3 c
chopped fresh cilantro

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Drain the beans. Combine the beans, 8 cups fresh water, onions, garlic, and ginger in a soup pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Skim off any foam that rises to the top. Cover, reduce the heat, and simmer until the beans are very tender, about 2 hours.
2
Let the beans cool slightly, then puree in a blender or food processor or strain through a food mill. Return to the pot and add the cumin, salt, cardamom and coriander. Simmer for at least 30 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
3
Just before serving, stir in the coconut milk and cilantro. Serve hot. Do not allow the soup to boil once the coconut milk has been added.
