- 1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
3/4 teaspoon ground coriander

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 cups veggie broth
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can navy beans, rinsed and drained
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the chopped onions, cooking for five to 10 minutes or until they're soft.
- Add the coriander, cumin, salt, and pepper, mixing for 30 seconds. Pour in the veggie broth, beans, and diced sweet potatoes. Bring to a boil and then simmer, uncovered, for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
- Set aside three cups of the cooked beans and sweet potatoes. Puree the rest of the soup with a hand blender. Return the reserved beans and potatoes back to the soup pot, cooking for another 10 minutes. Add the lime juice. Season with salt and pepper as desired.
