“I've just discovered adzuki beans, and if you've never tried them, I strongly recommend them ! They are highly nutritious, and contain 25% protein, one of the highest ratios among beans. This spicy soup is a lovely way in which to make their acquaintance. My personal preference for the fresh garden herb mixture is half rosemary/half oregano, but by all means use what you like best !”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash the adzuki beans well in several changes of water, then drain.
  2. In a large pot, bring the 6 cups water to a boil.
  3. Add all ingredients and boil rapidly for 15 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 2 hours.
  5. You may puree fully or partially for a smoother soup, but I prefer it just as it is.
  6. Serve with slices of GOOD bread!
