I am looking for a recipe for either twelve bean or
seven bean soup. Not sure how many bean soup it is but someone out there HELP.
You can purchase premixed packages of 7, 12 or 15-bean soup in many supermarkets, and many if not most of these packaged mixes bear recipes on them. A friend of mine makes his in a crockpot. I myself have never made these particular soups, but have made homemade pea, potato and lentil soup--the trick is to use a good smokey stock as the liquid--either from the "cooking juice" from smoked ham hocks, smoked butt, neckbones, turkey, etc. Then, the usual--potatoes,carrots, stewed tomatoes, celery etc., and of course seasonings such as bay leaves and thyme. Refer to a standard cookbook, look under "bean" or "dried legume" soup--but first check those packages in the store for a recipe--I will try to get back to the board on this when I have more time!
