Subject: RECIPE: Easy Tomato Bean Soup 2:26 PM
It's funny how once you change eating habits you forget about old recipes.
anyway, this is an old favorite of mine that just so happens to be fat free. I
made it last night and it tasted great. The recipe is adapted from a book
called "cooking for one is fun" which is an adaptation of NYT recipes for
smaller portions. This recipe scales to any size.
1 can "new england" baked beans (make sure it doesn't have lard in it.)
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can water
your favorite soup-herbs & spices
Just dump it all in a pot, bring to a boil, then simmer for anywhere from
45minute to 1.5hours. Longer cooking = thicker soup, mushier beans. Tastes
even better after a day or so (remember to refridge and reheat ;-)
Suggested h&s: whole pepper corns, fresh garlic, tarragon, chili pepper...
Variations: use "flavored" stewed tomatoes such as mexican- & italian-style
The soup also taste great over rice.
