Bariatric Lynn's Vegetable Mixed Bean Soup

Submitted by: HEALTHYLIVN4ME
Bariatric Lynn's Vegetable Mixed Bean Soup

Introduction

This makes a yummy, easy-on-the-tummy soup for a cool Autumn or Winter Day. This is also good pureed for early post-op eating plans. This makes a yummy, easy-on-the-tummy soup for a cool Autumn or Winter Day. This is also good pureed for early post-op eating plans.
Number of Servings: 14

Ingredients

    1 - 16 oz bag of HAYES® STAR BRAND® Bean Soup Mix (or any brand of mixed beans for soup)

    Celery Heart, fresh and tender with the strings removed from each stalk. Cut into 1 inch pieces diagonally (to make it prettier) until you have 6 ounces prepared.

    1 lb. Carrots, raw, fresh & sweet. Peel, remove ends and cut into 1 inch chunks. Should have 14 ounces prepared.

    1 lb. White Potatoes, peel and cut into large chunks. Should have 14 ounces prepared.

    2/3 of a Large Sweet Onion (Vidalia, Texas Sweet, Walla Walla, etc.), peeled and coarsely chopped. Should have 6 ounces prepared.

    1 - 14 oz can SWANSON® Beef Broth, Lower Sodium, 100% Fat Free

    1 - 14 oz. can SWANSON® Vegetarian Vegetable Broth, 100% Fat Free

    1 Large Cube of KNORR® Vegetarian Vegetable Bouillon, 1/2 Cube = 5g/20 cal.

    4+1/2 cups water

Directions

1. Rinse and sort beans to remove any stones or bad beans. Combine 7-8 cups of cold water and the entire 16 ounce bag of beans. Cover and let stand for 6-8 hours or overnight.
2. Drain water and rinse beans.
3. Add 6 ounces celery heart, 14 ounces chopped carrots, 14 ounces chopped potatoes and 6 ounces coarsely chopped onion to the bean mixture.
4. Add 1 can of low-sodium beef broth, 1 can of vegetable broth and 1 large cube of Knorr's Vegetarian Vegetable Bullion.
5. Add 4 plus 1/2 cups of water (hot or cold--does not matter).
6. Stir all ingredients together and bring to a rolling boil.
7. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour or until all ingredients are tender and potatoes begin to break down and thicken the soup.

Makes 14 - generous 1 cup servings with almost 9 grams of protein and only 69 calories per serving!

Beans need to be eaten with a grain at the same meal to make them a complete protein so I like to make corn muffins to go along with the bean soup. Nutrition information does not include the corn muffin.

    This sounds like a great and economical meal! If you added a bit of barley to the recipe, would that count to make it a complete protein. Giving it a try this week. :)
