Bean Soup for a Cold Windy Day

printable versionI always liked ham and bean soup, but never exactly figured out how to make it to my liking. Today I succeeded! Those of us with delicate palates don't care for the heavy spices usually associated with bean soups. My other problem is I am one of 3 to 5% of people who get terribly arthritic with eating nightshades, a family of plants that includes potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers, chili peppers, paprika, eggplant and tobacco. I think of it as the nightshade family producing a poison which we cannot detoxify. All these restrictions are a tall order for bean soup.

I started with a package called 15 bean soup, 1 pound 4 oz of 15 different kinds of beans. The spice packet, of course, went into the trash. This is a fussy recipe, good for a day when you're hanging around the house most of the day anyway. My "boys" is not particularly fond of soups. So the fact that Wayne, Alex and Alex's best friend ate two bowls full says it was great stuff! Click here for the 15 Bean Soup and Ham Soup recipe.
