“I wasn't willing to trust the bean soup seasoning packet to be vegetarian so this is the seasonings I came up with. I'm a "pinch here, pinch there" cook so you may need to adjust the seasonings to your taste. When cooking the beans, make sure they are tender before adding any acidic ingredients like tomatoes or lemon juice.”
