RECIPE: New twist for left over bean soup........

I had small navy bean soup, made w/ chicken soup base, frozen peas, large can of tomato w/ added veggies, salt pepper, garlic pwd. I had put in a cooked rice blend left from a baked chicken dinner.

For this serving I added a 1/2 bag of fresh spinach under the soup mix to heat. I roasted butternut squash and parsnips using olive oil and some thyme on the parsnips, served the soup over them. It was very tasty, veggies added sweetness to the soup.

I have been experimenting w/ beans for a few weeks now. My DH's colesterol, a bit high, so...........

I liked the idea of instant soup made from bean flour but found an easier way. Cook small beans, lentils, split peas, 10 min, w/ choice of add ins, seasonings, then put in good blender or vegga matic, puree in batches , returning to cook a bit longer w/ added liquid of choice to desired consistence. No need to thicken w/ anything unless you would like to add instant potatoes for nurishment.
I like to use resturant quality soup bases w/out MSG and less salt.
For larger beans cook them 20 minutes following the same process.
Add toppings as you would w/ chili or soup..., cheese, sour cream, chopped onions.....

Vangy likes to cook, propagete and play in the dirt.

Do you buy your soup bases locally or on line? I've not seen soup bases at our restaurant supply house.
