This recipe was delicious. I substituted the ham for some spicy smoked sausage and added some garlic and WOW! I have been looking for a black bean soup recipe like this and lucked out with this one. I served it with some fresh home made bread. P.S soaking beans overnight cuts down on cooking time. Thank you!


This was so easy to make. I soaked the beans for extra tenderness, and ended up using a smoked turkey leg instead of the ham bone. When it was done, I pulled the meat off the bone and used that instead of the cubed ham. I also added garlic, black pepper, and a little cayenne, as well as a little extra salt since the turkey was not as salty as a ham bone would have been. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly, and it was really quite good.


I had been looking for a basic recipe for black bean soup. I first tried this recipe as written and didn't cover the pot. It took an extra hour to cook the beans. I loved the soup, as did my family. I also added tabasco. This time, I'm making it without the vinegar, to make it a basic black bean soup. It still tastes wonderful.
