  • Looks to me like you used 2 cups of cooked beans instead of dry beans. You may need to edit this and get the calories right. - 9/11/07

  • I'd like to know how large each serving is; this recipe has 20 servings at only 35 calories per serving? This must be a very small serving, or it's mostly broth. Still, the food itself sounds delicious, and it is an easy dish to cook (from past experience with bean soups) as long as you plan ahead - 3/27/07
