Chicken & Rice with White Beans Soup

Submitted by: FORMERHEAVYWGHT
Chicken & Rice with White Beans Soup

Introduction

I keep a lot of dried beans & grains on hand all the time. My family & I really like this soup. It tastes good & is so good for you. You can add some Tones Chicken Base if you'd like, but have found it to be flavorful enough without. This is a taste good, feel good soup. When my family & I eat this, it's our main course, so we usually don't just restrict ourselves to 12 ozs. It's so good & a naturally light meal that it's filling without a lot of fat or calories. Feel free to doctor it to your hearts content. This is just a basic recipe & I add & subtract ingredients according to what's on hand. I keep a lot of dried beans & grains on hand all the time.

Ingredients

    2 - skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 16 oz total) cut into bite size pieces
    2 carrots cleaned & sliced
    7 stalks of celery sliced (I like the use the heart of the celery & put the greenery in too)
    1 large onion diced
    1/4 c dry navy beans
    1/4 c dry garbanzo (chick peas)
    1/4 c dry navy beans
    1/4 c dry pearl barley
    1/4 c brown rice (uncooked)
    1/4 c wild rice (uncooked)
    1/4 c farro (uncooked)
    1/4 c quinoa (uncooked)
    2 t Bragg Liquid Amino (or to taste)
    Sea Salt, Pepper & Parsley to taste.
    Water

Tips

In the past, I've rinsed & soaked my beans, rices & grains. I've found that by throwing them all in the pot (without the rinsing & soaking) doesn't make any difference in flavor from the rinsing & soaking method & is a whole lot faster.


Directions

Add 2 cups of water to a 5 quart soup pot. Add all other ingredients & turn burner to high to start boiling. Add more water to fill pot to within 1 - 1 1/2 inches from top. Bring to rolling boil. Put lid on & turn burner down to a strong simmer. Remove lid & stir occasionally. If the water boils down, add more water to bring the level back up. Continue cooking until all beans and grains are done. This should be about 3 hours. I let it simmer on low heat & stir occasionally so it won't stick.

    1/4 cup of dry navy beans is in the recipe twice. Is this correct?
