bean soup

Quick and easy black bean soup is ready to serve in less than 30 minutes! And thanks to CharcoCaps you can enjoy bean soup any time of day without worry. This year my family embarked on a mission to eat healthier food. We've made some drastic changes to our diets and we've been eating more beans. I'm not really a huge fan of beans of any kind, but my kids love them. I'm always a little nervous about eating too many beans because as my dad likes to say, "beans, beans are a magical fruit! The more you eat the more you ....!" Ha ha! But I came across a black bean soup recipe that I just love. It's super tasty, filling and best of all it's ready to go in less than 30 minutes. It's been a great addition to our lunch and dinner menu, but eating a huge bowl of basically beans does cause me to worry.

This is our first year with a kid in school and it seems my daughter has brought home every germ possible.   To make matters worse, I also volunteer once a week in her classroom.  About three weeks ago I came down with the same cold every kid her in classroom had.  And it has dragged on and on!  But I do have a few tricks up my sleeve to help make a cold a little more tolerable to deal with. My first rule of a cold is good tissue and lots of it.  The tissues have to be super strong and soft.  After blowing your nose for just a few days, much less weeks, it can get very sore and tender.  A soft tissue is absolutely necessary and Kleenex fits the bill for my family.   You can print a $1.00 off a Kleenex four ...

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Hillshire Brand Company but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #buy3save3  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO Lentil soup with sausage is an easy, filling, and delicious meal.  Cooked in the slow cooker and packed with health ingredients, this lentil soup is a family favorite. I fell in love with lentils and lentil soup when I worked for a travel company and spent time traveling in the near east.  I was very happy to discover that lentil soup is very easy to make and I began recreating my favorite lentil soup at home.  I have a few different versions of lentil soup, but this one is by far my favorite because of the sausage.  The sausage adds a new depth of flavor and interest to the lentils. You can use any sausage you like in this soup. In the past I've used a spicy Italian sausage, but I always thought it would taste super with a smoky sausage instead.  As it just so happens, until ...

A good soup recipe is my secret trick to getting dinner on the table in 30 minutes! This broccoli cheese soup is a delicious and filling soup recipe that the whole family will love. In general, I try to make a menu plan each week.  When the weather gets cooler, I often will dedicate one night a week to soup night.  I make a soup and serve it with a side of bread.  Soups may seem like they are difficult to make, but they are actually one of the quickest and easiest dinner options in my recipe collection!  I love that I can add veggies and meat to make a complete, one pot meal that is usually ready in 30 minutes. Broccoli cheese soup is a family favorite.  I usually just stick to broccoli in this soup, but it'd be easy to add carrots and even chicken for a one pot meal.   I've used all different kinds of cheeses - including Velveeta - to make this soup just depending on what I have on hand. It's a very flexible recipe!  I lightened up the soup a bit by using chicken stock in ... [read more]

Potato and Leek Soup from Growing Up Gabel @thegabels #recipe

Potato and leek soup is one of the easiest and most delicious soups you can make.  We generally make this during the summer when we can get potatoes and leeks from our local farmer.  Serve the soup with slow cooker dinner rolls and you don't even have to turn on the oven. I have been wanting to try Julia Child's potato and leek soup recipe.  So a few summers ago, even though it was over 100 degrees, I couldn't turn down the opportunity to make the recipe with potatoes and leeks we picked ourselves. We picked the produce in the morning and made soup in the evening.  Talk about farm to table! Our then 11 year old helped cook dinner once a week so she actually made the soup. She was very proud of her dinner and was begging our picky 4 year old to just try a little bit! It's amazing that water, potatoes, leeks, salt, and pepper make such a delicious meal. We figured out that it cost about $.75 to make a gigantic pot of soup. We added in a scoop of sour cream and served the ... [read more]
