Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Instructions

  1. Spread the dry beans out on a baking sheet and pick out any pebbles.
  2. Place the beans in a big soup pot, cover with water by 3 inches and allow them to soak overnight or for 6-8 hours, then discard that water.
  3. Return the soaked beans to the pot and cover with 3 inches of water again, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low, put the cover on and allow to cook until the beans start to get tender but still firm, about 1 1/2 hours. Drain the beans.
  4. Heat the oil in a soup pot over med-high heat.
  5. Add the onion along with a pinch of salt and saute until softened and golden.
  6. Stir in 1 tbsp of ground cumin, add the beans along with the broth or water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook for 30 min.
  7. Meanwhile peel and chop the sweet potatoes.
  8. Wash the kale, remove the stems and chop the leaves.
  9. Remove half of the beans and liquid and set aside to cool a bit.
  10. Add the sweet potatoes and kale to the pot with some salt and pepper. Cover and cook for 10 minutes.
  11. Transfer the cooled beans to a blender and puree until smooth, then return them to the pot.
  12. Stir in the remaining 1 tbsp of ground cumin.
  13. Now add 1 tbsp of the chipotles in adobo. Taste and continue to add more until it has a spice level that you like.
  14. Adjust the salt & pepper as needed.
  15. Serve with a dollop of sour cream.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Some bouillon/stock products contain gluten, some don't. If you are following a gluten-free diet, always read product labels carefully.

Cooking Tips

  • To keep your eyes from stinging and watering while cutting onions, trying popping the onion in the freezer for 15 minutes before you plan to start cooking. Chilling the onion slows the release of the enzyme responsible for teary eyes.

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.

  • You should not store your onions with your potatoes because the gases they emit will make each other spoil faster. For more information about selecting and storing onions, check out this lesson about onions in the academy.

Green Tips

  • Beans freeze well, so don't throw out your leftovers!
