1 (16 ounce) package
dry mixed beans
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
I made this recipe just like it said, but I felt it was a bit flavorless. So I added some chicken stock and a couple of chicken bouillon cubes, and it tasted really good. A great recipe to use for the Ten bean mix I bought for my food storage. My husband enjoyed it too. Thank you.
Great base recipe...I omit the bacon, instead add smoked turkey necks and holy trinity (bell pepper, onion, celery) and chopped garlic. Allow the beans to simmer for an hour. After an hour add creole seasoning to taste....like Tony's or any other seasoning you like. DONT ADD UNTIL AFTER AN HOUR!!! Simmer unitl the beans are tender. At the very end I add a little bit of sugar....VERY VERY TASTY!!!
My mother used to make this years ago and I acquired a taste for it. Easily bland for some people, though. However, I doubled everything except the beans and it turned out rather tasty. Our house loved it and ate every bit of it. Only thing though, some people may want to adjust how salty it is by adding their own salt later when it's served. Otherwise, it's delicious!
It was flavorful. I added some more spices and used diced ham.
It's a great base but you have to adjust to your personal liking, all it takes is a little creativity. I am vegetarian so no Bacon for me. I always add a can of crushed tomatoes to any soup I am making for the most part. In this one I added some Italian Seasoning, Turmeric, Crushed Red pepper and Coriander. Revise to get flavor you want.
I made this as directed adding only some carrots and it was really bland. Not bad - but nothing to write home about. Using ham stock or chicken stock would have helped. We were able to doctor this up. It's a good starting point though.
Easy tastier version of split pea soup.
Ten kinds of Yummy!! Soak for a day, crock pot for a day, eat for two days!! So easy!!
