Recipe for black bean and pumpkin soup. Easy, healthy, fast, hearty, perfect for fall and cooler weather. I use smoked spices, but you can make it with regular spices as well. You probably have the ingredients in your pantry. Make it vegetarian or vegan as well. Avocado, cheese, chives, crushed chips, all make great garnishes. Let everyone customize their bowl.
Started with a quick soak (boil beans for one minute and rest for an hour, then drain water) and moved it to the Crock Pot. After 7 hours on Low beans were not broken up yet and was too watery. Next time I'll use only 6 cups of water and cook on high, per Cook's Illustrated black bean slow cooker recipe. However, great flavor and pretty simple.
