This is a flavorful and easy Blackeyed Bean Soup recipe that uses West African flavors and ingredients.

It is a healthy gluten free recipe that takes very little time to prepare. Using freshly soaked beans is best in this recipe but if you do not have the time, canned beans will do in pinch.

To Make this recipe, you will need the following:


2 Cups Cooked Black-eyed Beans
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
¼ Cup Onions
2 Cloves Garlic (Minced)
1 Tbsp Hot Chili peppers
¼ Cup Cooked Shrimp (Blended)
2 Tbsp Peanut Butter (Smooth)
1 Lemon, Juiced
1½ Cups Chicken/Vegetable Broth
Salt & Pepper to Taste


  1. On medium heat, heat oil in a medium size saucepan. Add onions and cook until soft before adding garlic.
  2. Add hot chili peppers, shrimp paste, beans, salt and pepper. Cook for about 2 minutes. Mix in the peanut butter and pour in a little broth as needed until you create a smooth paste.
  3. Add broth and bring to a slight boil. Turn heat down to simmer and cook for about 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and add lemon juice just before serving.


Another way to serve this soup is to puree it in a blender until smooth. It turns it into a warm, hearty soup.
