This easy and super flavorful Black Bean Soup with Pico De Gallo comes together in only 30 minutes which makes it perfect for any weeknight meal! {vegan, gluten free}

It’s the first installment of 30 Minute Thursday for 2016!  I wasn’t that great at being consistent with it last year, but I’m going to try to make it a point to participate each month this year.  I hope you guys enjoy this series and find it beneficial!  Not all recipes are gluten free or vegetarian but most can easily be tweaked for any dietary needs you may have.  You’ll find some delicious 30 minute recipes from some of my favorite food blogger friends at the bottom of the post :)

As I write this post I’m sitting next to the portable heater with Cheeto curled up on my lap, with a soft blanket of course.  It’s pouring rain outside and there isn’t a hint of sun in the sky.  My Bob Dylan Pandora is playing loudly and I have a big bowl of this soup in front of me.  And let me tell you, it is delicious!

If it weren’t for Cheeto on my lap I would already be planning my trip to the kitchen for seconds.  But everyone knows that you can’t disturb a sleeping cat :)  This soup really is great for those cold winter days where you just want to curl up under a warm blanket and not leave the house the entire day.  Another great thing about it is that it only takes 30 minutes from start to finish.  Trust me, I timed myself while making it!  I have to admit that it was a little stressful but I wanted to make absolutely sure that it only took 30 minutes to make.  It’s also packed with peppers and onions and topped off with a fresh pico de gallo for a perfect kick of vegetables!

Stay warm and eat soup!

    I love love love your website and recipes, and so does my family (they get to enjoy the great meals that come out of the kitchen, and sometimes we even make them together). One suggestion/request I have, could you reformat the print page, so when we print recipes, everything fits on 1 sheet, rather than 2 that are only partially printed. Thank you! :)

      Hi Sigi! I’m so glad you and your family are loving my recipes!! I use a recipe plugin for the printing of my recipes but I will look into it and hopefully I can change it to one page rather than two! Have a great day :)

    I love black bean soup — especially black bean soup in 30 minutes! This looks delicious with that fresh pico de gallo on top, and I’d love a bowl right about now!

    haha Emma is constantly laying on me when I am on the couch … makes typing so hard!! This soup sounds amazing. Black bean soup is a favorite of mine and with pico?? Yes yes!

    It’s been perfect soup weather here lately and I would have loved a double bowl of this delicious soup! It looks so full of flavor and I love that you topped it with fresh pico de gallo!

    I love that your cats name is Cheeto – so cute! My husband and I regularly use the excuse of having a cat on our lap to get the other one to do something “Can you make me some tea? I would, but I have a cat, you see”. This soup is so perfect for this time of year. Quick, healthy and delicious, that is my kind of dinner!

    I love a good thick and creamy black bean soup, especially one that comes together in 30 minutes! Now I’m craving a bowl of this, a blanket and a purring kitty on my lap. :)

    Seriously, I want a Cheeto so bad but my husband won’t let me because he “claims” that he’s allergic. (insert eye rolling emoji here).

    I hope you have a great weekend, Izzy!

    Awwwhhh.. sweet Cheeto is the King of the Jungle; there will be no disturbing the King. hehe… soooo delicious Izzy and warming for this time of year. Black Beans are such an easy, economical way to get lots of protein and fiber in and they are so good anyway! Love them! Thank you for this and Happy New Year!!
