  1. Soak the beans in water for 8 hours or overnight, placing the pan in the refrigerator so that the beans will not ferment. Before cooking the beans, drain the soaking liquid and rinse the beans with clean water.
  2. Put the beans on the stovetop in a large pot, such as a Dutch oven. Add the vegetable stock, onion, bell peppers, and leeks.
  3. Bring the beans and veggies to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, partially covering the pot. If any foam develops, you can skim it off during the simmering process. Black beans generally take about 1½ to 2 hours to become very soft.
  4. When very soft, puree.
  5. Add remaining ingredients, stir, and serve.
