Jenn's Low Fat Vegan Bean and "Ham"

Submitted by: JENNSWIMS

Introduction

Yes, it's true, this soup that tastes like it was made with ham hocks is totally vegan. It seems odd, but as long as you stick with the Goya brand, you are eating vegan! Some of the measurements are wonky because that was how they were programmed in the system, so don't fret if you are a little over or under. Personally, I love to throw a bunch of onions in, but you may prefer something else. Soup is also very good with great northern beans, which is a more traditional bean and ham soup.

If you are in a hurry, use canned great northern beans. Combine all ingredients except beans, simmer for 20 minutes, add canned beans, and simmer for another ten.

Ingredients

    Goya Ham Flavored Concentrate, 8 serving (remove)
    Trader Joe's 17 Bean & Barley Soup, 1 cup
    Granulated Onion, 3 tsp
    Better than Bouillon "chicken" Reduced Sodium, 4 tbsp
    onion, dried minced, 6 tbsp
    Imagine Not Chicken Broth 32 ounces
    Celery, raw, 1 cup, diced
    Shallots, 3, chopped
    Yellow Onion, 1 large, chopped
    Carrots, raw, 1 cup, chopped
    Garlic, 5 cloves, minced
    Soy Sauce, 1 tbsp

    water

Directions

Soak beans overnight in cold water. Drain and replace water at least once.

After soaking, simmer beans for 30 minutes in a stockpot. Use enough water to cover beans by several inches, which may vary depending on the size of your stock pot.

Once the beans are tender but still not quite done, add all other ingredients. Simmer for 20 minutes, or until beans are completely cooked.

Keep in mind that sodium levels and the intensity of the broth are a very personal thing. You may want to start with half of the bouillon and half of the ham flavor, then adjust as needed when the beans are cooked fully. You may use more or less than indicated here.

To intensify the veggie flavor, you can also use roasted veggies in the soup.
