Black Bean and Sausage Soup with Garlic Cilantro Rice

I love to make garlic cilantro rice with everything because it is so easy. Any soup or chili goes well served over this delicious rice. This soup is really delicious served over the garlic cilantro rice! While the soup is simmering in your crockpot or on the stove, cook the rice – it only takes about 20 minutes.

Black Bean and Sausage Soup

8 oz. sausage, sliced (I used kielbasa) if you use an already cooked sausage, it makes the recipe much easier – if you prefer another type of uncooked sausage, cook and drain the sausage before adding it to the crockpot

2 cans black beans
1 can beef or chicken broth
2 small carrots, diced
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 large onion, chopped

1 T. chili powder
1 T. worcestershire sauce
1 t. cumin
1/2 t. salt
dash red pepper flakes

Add all ingredients to the crockpot and cook on high for 4 hours.


1 to 2 T. olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 t. salt
1 c. rice
1 1/2 c. water
1/4 c. fresh cilantro, chopped

Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil for a couple of minutes. Add the rice. Coat the rice in the oil and onions and garlic. Add the salt. Add the water. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat to low and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat and add the cilantro.
