Soup and Beans!

It is cold and wet here. I found a couple of bean soup recipes that sound so tasty and warm!

Cajun Beans Over Cornbread

8 oz Stewed tomatoes
1 ts Dried minced onion
Tobasco sauce
15 oz Great north. beans; canned
1 ts Chicken bouillon
1/8 ts Garlic powder
1/2 c Cheddar; shredded

Combine undrained beans, undrained tomatoes, and all ingredients except cheese in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 10 mins.

To serve, split a piece of cornbread in half. Spoon beans over cornbread and sprinkle with cheese.

Black Bean Soup 

4 thick slices bacon (chopped)
2 stalks celery (chopped)
3 onions (chopped)
1 lb. black beans (soaked overnight and drained)
1 ham bone
2 bay leaves
2 cloves garlic (pressed)
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 cans beef broth
6 cans water
Salt and pepper to taste
8 lemon slices for garnish

In a heavy saucepan, saute bacon pieces until lightly browned. Add celery and onions and saute for 3 minutes without browning. Add remaining ingredients. Combine well and bring to a boil.

Simmer low about 2 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. Remove meat from bone and discard bone. Cool the soup. Put through blender. Reheat and serve with lemon slices on top.

I got these from Bethany’s blog. She said she added 2 cups of cooked rice to the Black Bean Soup and left out the ham bone and lemon.
