Bean and Veggie Stoup

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Mmmm…making this soup brings me back to childhood, playing outside until I was too cold to stand it…walking in to my father preparing one of his many homemade soups. This hearty soup/stew is perfect to warm you on a chilly fall or winter evening. A one pot meal that serves 4, and is great paired with your favorite bread.

Ingredients:

2 cups of 10 bean/pea mixture (any mixture you prefer, we got a variety from the bulk section in the supermarket)
Reminder: if using dry beans/peas, soak in water overnight in the fridge…it using canned beans, rinse with water

3 gold pearl onions, peeled and diced small

2 large kale leaves, chopped small

1 scallion, diced

2 large carrots, diced

1 large tomato, diced (we love Heirloom tomatoes)

2 celery stalks, diced

4 small cloves of garlic, diced

4 basil leaves, to be added whole

1 bay leaf

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. oregano

1 32 oz. carton vegetable broth

2 cups water

salt & pepper to taste

Method of Prep:

In a large soup/stock pot heat the olive oil over Med/Hi heat, once hot add in the garlic and onions sauteing them until they start to brown.

Add in 2 cups of water and container of vegetable broth, bring to a boil over Med/Hi heat.

Add in the beans/pea mixture and bay leaf, bring to a hard boil, then cover, reducing the heat to Med/Low, let simmer for approximately 40 mins, stirring once half way through.

Add in carrots, celery, scallions, tomatoes, basil, simmering for 10-15 mins.

Lastly, add in chopped kale, simmering for an additional 10-15 mins.

Remove the bay leaf….Serve hot, enjoy!

Serves 3
