Can You Swap Out Beans in Black Bean Vegetable Soup

What to Pair with this Vegetable Black Bean Soup

You could pair cornbread, dinner rolls, crisp salad, or even crackers with this slow cooker soup. Or skip the sides and eat it alone! No matter how you serve it, I guarantee you will want seconds. 

Can You Freeze Black Bean Vegetable Soup 

I have not tried freezing this soup but I don’t see why it would be a problem. I just wouldn’t add any sour cream to the top of the soup as that would break down during the freezing process. 

To save room in your freezer, pour the soup into a freezer bag, and seal and lay flat in your freezer. One it is frozen, you can stand it up on the bag’s side and it takes up hardly any room in the freezer. 

To reheat from the freezer just let thaw in the fridge overnight. Or run the bag under warm water to help break it away then transfer into a pan and warm up on the stove or even slow cooker. 

How Long Does this Bean and Vegetable Soup Last in Fridge 

You can store your bean and vegetable soup in the fridge for up to three days. Anything after that it is best to toss out to prevent getting sick. Make sure to put up any leftovers before two hours, or you risk it going bad. 

How to Make Bean and Vegetable Soup

Just chop up your veggies and get them prepared, and then place them in the slow cooker along with the spices and other ingredients. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. 

If you want a creamier base take around 3 cups of your finished soup and puree it a bit to offer a smoother texture. If you don’t do this, you will have a very thin soup. It is all about the texture you want from the soup. 

Can I Use Bone Broth in Place of Vegetable Broth

Bone broth has so many incredible benefits. If you choose to use a bone broth, it will make this not-vegetarian. BUT, you are more than welcome to swap to a bone broth. Chicken or beef will work. 

You can also use regular broth as well as chicken or beef. If you use a lower sodium broth, know it will adjust the flavor slightly and make it a bit blander.

Can I Add Other Vegetables into Black Bean and Veggie Soup 

Of course! Feel free to toss in vegetables that you and your family enjoy. From diced up zucchini, fresh spinach leaves (toss in last 30 minutes of cook time), or any other vegetable you enjoy. Just take note changing the recipe will adjust the flavor slightly.
