Black bean and Lentil soup - Canned Soup made flavorful - Easy, Semi-homemade

I wanted to make something easy and quick, but didn't want to have the unflavorful canned soup. I had a can of black beans and couple of cans of the Progresso lentil soup. All I did was add some frsh ingredients and mix it with the black beans and the lentil soup. It came very good and yummy. Simmering it made it taste like home made soup!!! It was crunchy with the onions and chuncky with tomatoes and beans. I only added these, but you can add any other veggies too like bell pepper, celery etc.,.


1 can of Progresso lentil soup
1 small can of black beans, washed
1 small onion, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp red chilli flakes
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
salt to taste
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
few drops of oil


In a pot, heat few drops of oil and add the garlic and saute. Add the onion and saute for a minute. Then add the tomato and saute for a minute. Add the lentil soup and washed, canned black beans and mix everything together. Add the coriander powder, cumin powder, red chilli flakes, salt, turmeric and mix together. Simmer on medium low heat for about 5 minutes and add the coriander leaves. Serve hot. Enjoy!!!

Prep time: less than 10 min
