Check out the recipe below for a Red Bean Soup:

Beans are so rich in vitamins and protein. Plus they are excellent for our digestive systems! Serve this soup with a fresh vegetable plate and bean dip or a nice green salad.


1 tablespoon olive oil 2

11⁄2 cups chopped yellow onions 1

1⁄4 cup chopped green bell 3

quarts vegetable stock teaspoon salt tablespoons chopped parsley cup diced carrots

cups cooked long-grain brown rice, warm

tablespoons chopped green onions


1 tablespoon minced garlic

4 bay leaves

1 1 1⁄2 cups dried red kidney beans, 6

soaked overnight

1 tablespoon Special Seasoning, (recipe follows on next page)


1. Heat the oil in a large heavy pot over high heat. Add the onions, bell peppers, garlic, and bay leaves, and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.

2. Add the beans and cook for 2 minutes.

3. Add the Special Seasoning and stock, stir well, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 1 1/2 hours, until beans are tender, stirring occasionally.

4. Add the salt and parsley, cover the pot, and cook for 15 minutes. Discard the bay leaves. Remove 1 cup of beans from the pot and reserve.

5. With a hand-held immersion blender, or in batches in a food processor, puree the red beans. Add the reserved beans, and stir well.

6. To serve, ladle a generous cup of the soup into each of 6 bowls. 7. Top each serving with 1/4 cup of the rice and 1 tablespoon of green onions.
