 Post subject: Bean soup redux
PostPosted: Sat Aug 13, 2005 7:29 pm 
Well, I finally got around to making another batch of bean and vegetable soup, taking into consideration the flaws of the last batch (which admittedly wasn't bad once it was diluted 3 to 1...). The results were much, much better, if not quite so concentrated:

Bean and Vegetable Soup #2
makes 26-28 cups

1 cup mixed lentils
1/2 cup each dark kidney, cannellini, garbanzo, and black beans, and green split peas
1/3 cup each fava and pinto beans
1/4 cup each black eye and navy beans
1/2 large red cabbage head
2 small tomatoes
3 jalapeno peppers
3 small onions (Approx 1 cup)
2 med potatoes
4 cups mixed oriental vegetables
1 cup corn
1 cup green peas
1/2 cup frozen butter beans
1 cup fresh broccolli
1/2 cup fresh cauliflower
1/2 cup cut green beans
1/4 cup dried porcini mushrooms
2 tbsp Better than Boullion vegetable base
1 tbsp table salt
1 tsp each onion powder, ground sage, ground oregano, crushed thyme, crushed rosemary, basil
1/2 tsp each cardamom, cumin

Sort and wash beans. Boil beans with salt in 8qt stock pot (topped up), uncovered for 1.5 hours. Add vegetable base. Dice cabbage, onions, green beans, potatoes, tomatoes, and peppers, and add to stock pot. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer for 1 hour, stirring and watching for boilovers.

WW Point cost: potatoes(6), garbanzo beans (4), black beans (4), kidney beans (2), lentils (4), cannellini beans (4), fava beans (4), navy (2), blackeye peas (2), pinto (4), split peas (4), butter beans (2), corn (2), green peas (2), with the result: 6 + (4 * 7) + (2 * 6) = 46 / 26 = 1.7 = 2 per cup
