Be Prepared Three-Bean Soup

Submitted by: FITEMILY

Introduction

From Lois Richer on allrecipes.com. Great to make ahead and freeze, or put all dry ingredients together in a bag and have almost all the prep work done. I modified the recipe to include only the beans I like, and added brown rice (1 c. uncooked with 2 1/2 cups extra water, or 3 cups cooked). I also doubled all the spices because I wanted more flavor.

Ingredients

    1 cup each (uncooked): kidney, black, and pinto beans
    1/2 cup dry onion (or 2 onions)
    1 Tbsp paprika
    1 Tbsp parsley
    6 Tbsp bacon bits
    2 tsp salt
    1 tsp dry mustard
    1 tsp garlic powder
    4 Tbsp beef boullion (or substitute broth for some of the water)
    2 Tbsp vegetable oil
    28 oz can tomato sauce
    frozen veggies of your choice (I use one big bag)

Directions

Makes 18 1-cup servings.

Mix dry ingredients in quart-size bag to have ready ahead of time. Then just add the water, oil, and tomato sauce when preparing it.

Bring all ingredients except veggies to a boil in a 6-qt saucepan. Simmer for 2-2 1/2 hours until beans are tender. Add veggies in the last 10 minutes or so.

**QUICK VERSION**: Dry beans approximately double in size when cooked, so you can substitute one can of each type of bean you like. Then it only needs to be cooked long enough to cook the rice and meld the flavors - about 30-40 minutes.

  • I don't eat beans a lot but I like the idea of fixing ahead of time where all you have to do is add water and fix. I do that a lot with my food. This sounds sensible. I could also use with chili - 12/18/09
