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.
Easy, tasty and very satisfying.
Beautiful soup! Do you want my bread recipe?ReplyDelete
Absolutely! After seeing how much sodium is in the store made bread I am resigning myself to making it at home again. Now that it's not sweltering hot, I don't mind having the oven on or the bread maker going.Delete
Yum. I'm in the works making Italian Tortellini today. I just love this time of year. TFS Natasha.ReplyDelete
That sounds lovely, I am having a bowl of leftover soup for lunch today. Something very comforting even being around a steaming cup/bowl of soup. It's like a culinary hug.Delete
