I picked up this recipe at my local grocery store during a promotion for creative ways to use pumpkin. Black beans are not usually paired with this hearty fall vegetable, but once I tried this soup, I was a believer! Now it’s one of my favorite recipes to make when pumpkin is in season. —Lori Karavolis, McMurray, PA

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained

  • 3 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  1. In a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender, 4-5 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in wine. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half, 3-4 minutes.
