“This comes along with clean out your freezer week. I made this soup for my family this weekend and it went over bigtime. Young and old liked it and I made it vegetarian style. It can be made with meat (chicken or beef) but due to Lent it was veggie. (makes a huge amount) Freezes well. Recipe can be reduced proportionately.”

  2. add in 10 c water and all other ingredients (except extra water).
  3. bring to a boil.
  4. simmer for 1-2 hours or until beans are soft.
  5. s/p to taste.
  6. if needed add additional water or veggie broth.
  7. serve with a crusty bread and salad and dinner is served.
  8. *** if using meat, cube and saute meat with garlic and onions, then follow directions as listed. You will need additional water if meat is added.
  9. *** I cook by sight so measurements on water are approximate. My family likes more veggies than broth so I tend to use less water than most people.
  10. prepe time does not include soaking beans, however i just rinse and go even though it says soak for at least 3 hours. works for me everytime.
  11. recipe can be made in crockpot as well.
