Garden Recipes: Simple Vegetarian Bean Soup Recipe

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

A Garden Recipe Idea from

To go with the “Plymouth Bread’ – a very simple to make bean soup recipe.  Everything here in this recipe (except for the salt/pepper) I was able to produce from my garden.  However, it’s easy enough to substitute store-bought substitutes.

Simple Vegetarian Bean Soup Recipe

- vegetable broth
- pinto beans (soaked)
- swiss chard (chopped)
- onions (chopped)
- garlic (minced)
- celery (chopped)
- salt & pepper to taste

In a soup pot, saute the onions, garlic and celery until the onions are soft.  Add the vegetable broth and beans.  Simmer until the beans are just tender.  Add the chopped chard, and finish cooking the beans to the consistency that you like.  Salt and pepper to taste.
