Is there any dish that receives a lot of compliments and positive feedback maybe more than you feel it deserves.
Well, this bean soup is one of those dishes on my list.
For some reason Terry loves this white bean soup, and it’s one of a few things he makes a specific request for.
I agree that this soup is pretty tasty, but I also feel a bit guilty because it’s so easy to make!
But hey, I’m happy he likes this soup and not some kind of elaborate dish that would take days to prepare (lol).
1 onion, chopped
2~4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 can great northern beans, rinsed and dried
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper
1. Sautee onion, garlic, and celery in canola oil.
2. Add beans, water, and a bay leaf. Boil and then turn down to low heat. Continue to cook until vegetables are cooked through.
3. Remove the bay leaf. Puree using a hand blender.
4. Add soy milk, sugar, salt, and pepper.
5. Serve with paprika and olive oil.
I love to experiment all different spices, and just looking at the spice section in any store makes me happy (lol).
If I remember it right, I found this paprika at World Market.
The reason I came home with it?
The design and the color of the tin.
I don’t know where paprika is usually made but “Hungarian” paprika sounds good too, doesn’t it?
