  • 1 1/2 cups of dried black beans
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves - chopped finely
  • 1 medium white onion - sliced
  • 2 - 3 whole cloves
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large carrots diced or sliced thin
  • 2 - 3 tbsp sweet peppers red, orange or green (if using green add less because the flavor is stronger)
  • 2 sprigs of thyme
  • 1 full sprig of parsley
  • 1 tsp of chicken bouillon seasoning
  • 1 tbsp chive - chopped or 1 scallion chopped thinly
  • dash of red pepper flakes
  • ground black pepper and salt to taste.


  • Sort, rinse and drain bean. Set aside
  • In a large stockpot, add oil garlic, onion and cloves. Cook for about 2 minutes turning occasionally on low heat. Add the cleaned beans and about 8 to 10 cups of water. Cover ajar and bring to a boil over medium heat. If you need to add more water, add 2 cups of hot water. Cook beans until fully cooked but not overcooked, about 1 hr 15 minutes or longer depending on the beans.
  • Reserve 1 cup of cooked beans - set aside. Blend the remaining beans and bean liquid in a blender until completely blended. Strain bean puree and set aside. Discard beans residue.
  • In a stockpot, add remaining oil, carrots, peppers, chives/scallion, chicken bouillon powder, parsley, thyme, and red pepper flakes. Sautee for 1 minute and add reserved beans. Gently stir to blend. Add bean puree, season with salt and pepper to taste and let cook for about 20 to 30 minutes uncovered, under medium to low heat until the texture is a bit thicker and creamy like. If using dumpling add them in the last 20 minutes of cooking. Scrape bottom of pot regularly to avoid sticking. When the puree is at the consistency you want, remove and serve hot with white rice or plain polenta.


Cooking time may vary depending on type and brand of beans.
