Gottenburg & Black Bean Soup

Posted by Karla Powell on 22nd Mar 2021

Yields 10-12 cups


Ā½ pound of Gottenburg Sausage, sliced and quartered

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 red onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

2 carrots, chopped

1 red bell pepper, chopped

4 teaspoons ground cumin

2 teaspoons chili powder

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, to taste

1 15 oz. can sweet corn, drained and rinsed

3 15 oz. cans black beans, drained and rinsed

4 cups vegetable broth

1/2 lime, juiced

Salt & pepper, to taste


Heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Stir in the onions and garlic, with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent.

Stir in the carrot, red bell pepper, cumin, chili powder and red pepper flakes. Cook until the vegetables are soft, about 7-9 minutes.

Pour in the beans, corn, broth & sausage. Bring to a slow boil over medium-high heat then reduce to a gentle simmer. Cook until heated through, about 20 minutes. Turn off heat.

Stir in lime juice and taste test to see if it needs more salt or pepper.
