I love this time of year, the cold air and winds that announce the arrival of Christmas.
And to keep us warm, the family of the #SundaySupper wants to give you a list of delicious recipes for those cold evenings.
For example, I want to invite you to try this delicious black bean soup is very easy to do. I also want to tell you that this is a very traditional soup in Costa Rica and is consumed every time you cook beans, very nutritious and hearty, my family loves it.
I highly recommend consuming it together with a blanket and a pillow next to the fireplace, is the best way to eat a soup like this.
I hope you enjoy this and all the recipes we have for you today.

  • 4 cups black bean broth

Here is a link to my Gallo Pinto recipe where you can find how to make homemade black beans for the broth.


In a hot pan melt butter, add onion and cook for 5 minutes.
Add the bean broth, stir and boil for 5 minutes, remove from heat and serve in a bowl, add the peeled boiled eggs and cilantro.

  6. So different with the hard boiled egg. Yummy!!

  7. I love that you've added cilantro! It's my favorite thing in the world!

  8. What temperature do you set the crockpot to cook your black beans? I have given up cooking mine in the crockpot because they just don't seem to come out right. The last time I had them in the crock pot on low all day and they were still very firm almost slightly over cooked tasting. But tested the beans every hour and I never felt they were as soft as I get them when I do them on the stove.

  9. I dont think I have ever had hard boiled eggs in black bean soup. It is a great way to add some extra protein. THis would make a wonderful lenten meal.
