The soup is rich but heart healthy because there is only 5 mg of sodium per serving which is considered 0% of daily allowance. The following recipe is directly from the back of the package.
Start with an overnight soak of 2 cups of beans, then in the morning, drain, rinse, repeat till water runs clear/clean
The bag is 29 oz so that's approximately two portions (give or take an oz or so)
I didn't have a ham hock but I did find a thick slice of ham with bone in. I only used about a quarter, which is just shy of 210 mg of sodium but then divided among the 8-10 potions in the finished soup
Bring to a boil in 2 1/2 quarts of water, then turn to simmer for 3 to 3 1/2 hours
Finally add - 1 tablespoon of Chilli powders, 1 cup of diced tomatoes (can or fresh), 2 cloves of fresh garlic and simmer another 30 minutes
I served it in a bowl with fresh parsley from the garde, scallions, a dollop of sour cream and a squeeze of lime juice. Paulie had his with just parsley, scallions and a few dashes of Malt Vinegar. Enough leftovers to have for lunch over the weekend or stash two portions in the freezer for a lazy dinner night during the week.
