Bob's Red Mill Vegi Soup Mix mostly lentils

Sunday, April 14, 2013

I added caramelized onions and celery in olive oil and pepper. Maybe you have other ideas.

I could have added tomatoes.

And one recipe says to add pieces of leftover turkey or chicken. Ham would be best!

    I am sooooo thankful for Bob's Red Mill line of Gluten free foods ...huge blessing in my life. His are the only oats I have had since diagnosis of celiac and absolutely no gluten or belly ache....
Not sure which bean soup you have...I think there are several...I like mine with chicken .rosemary and thyme.onion.garlic.....or beef. onioin, tomato, sweet peppers almost like a chili....or pork/ham. onion/ little bit of brown sugar or molasses, tomato sauce, little bit of vinegar ...kind of like old fashioned pork and beans

    I was astounded at the high price of that brand, so I make my own, put it in canning jars.

    I generally find packaged or canned soups too high in Sodium count for me to use. But everyone here seems to like it so much I will have to look into it. Lady Irish has some tasty suggestions as well. Sounds Yummy

    This sounds good! I use Bob Mill oatmeal, but haven't tried the soup. These suggestions tell me "What's for dinner tomorrow?" emoticon

    I love adding fresh herbs at the end -cilantro, basil, parsley, etc. Adds some green and extra tatse.

    There are a lot of things you could do. You could add spinach or other greens, broccoli, shallots, garlic -- I can think of a lot of things. As for protein, chicken, shrimp, maybe clams? I'm going to have to look into this.

    Vegetable or chicken broth with carrots, celery, onion, garlic, if meat is a must then I use chicken, sometimes I will put in tomato juice or V8 juice. Good luck, let us know how it turned out.

    I'm a vegetarian by by doctors orders (developed an allergy to flesh), but when I was able to eat meat I would put low-sodium ham in it. I'd go to the deli, get 2 slices of ham set on the number 10 cut, take it to home and cut it into pieces and throw it in at the same time that I put the veggies in. I also put fresh carrots, garlic, marjoram, and a little beef broth. I use the beef broth to cook the bean mix with then about 2 hours before it's done (I prefer to do long slow cooking for my soups and beans) I add the ham and veggies. Now that I can't eat flesh I just leave the ham out but use everything else including the beef broth.

    I make mine with low sodium chicken broth instead of water, and add a finely chopped carrot the last 45 mins , as well as the carmalized onions , carmalized with minced garlic.
