13 Bean Soup Recipe

2 cups
6 cups
1 meaty
1 large
2 large
1 stalk
1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon
1 tablespoon
6 cups
1 teaspoon
1/4 teaspoon
13 beans, uncooked
ham bone or ham hock
onion chopped
carrots, chopped
celery, chopped
dried basil
Worcestershire sauce

Stove Temp: medium low
Recipe Cooking Time: 1 1/2 hours
Pan Type: dutch oven or stock pot

13 Bean Soup Directions

Place beans in a colander, look through the dry 13 beans to see if there are any rocks and remove them if you find any.
Wash and drain the 13 beans.
Place beans into the soup pot.
Cover 13 beans with the first amount of water.
Cover beans and let set 8 hours or overnight.
Drain and rinse the 13 beans and return to pan.
Add the diced ham or ham hock, chopped vegetables, basil, thyme, Worcestershire and second amount of water.
Stir to blend.
Bring 13 bean soup mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the meat is tender enough to easily remove from bone.
Cut meat off bone and put the ham back into the soup.
Continue to cook for allotted time or until 13 soup beans are tender and the flavors blend. Add the salt and pepper just before serving.

Personal Note: My niece called me the other day and asked what does it mean to wash and sort the beans? I took it for granted that everyone knew what this meant. Having said that, I think I explained it well enough that anyone can understand.

Recipe Note: 13 Bean soup mix contains navy, black, red, pinto, baby limas, large limas, garbanzo, red lentils, great northern, kidney beans, black-eyed peas, yellow splits, green splits and lentils. This is a good hearty and colorful bean soup mix.

Soup Recipe Serves: 6 – 8

Substitute, substitute, substitute. Recipes were made to be messed with. Use alternative ingredients to make your recipes healthier. Cook with broth (low-sodium vegetable, low-fat chicken or beef) instead of with oils. Use vinaigrettes or citrus-juice-based dressings instead of creamy ones, which are often full of saturated fat. Try olive oil, skim milk, or yogurt instead of butter or cream. Re-work dessert recipes that require heavy cream with evaporated skim milk or yogurt. For cakes and other desserts, substitute fresh-fruit puree as a topping instead of frosting. And one of my favorites: pancakes with applesauce, not maple syrup. These changes will give your favorite recipes great new flavor, and your food will be healthier!
