Orca Bean Soup

Orca Bean Soup

Ok, I have to fess up here.  I am not usually a great fan of beans.  I mean, I’ll eat them, with stuff, like avocado, cheese, chips, sour cream (get the idea?).  But a bean soup? It’s ok.  I’ll have some bread and maybe…it’ll sit in the fridge for a while — nine days, even?

But when I tried my go-to soup recipe with Orca beans?  Hold.The.Phone.  Something about these beans made this soup AMAZING.  I even did the same exact thing with another kind of beans, and it just wasn’t the same.  Get Orca beans and make this soup.  You will *die* with joy.

Ingredients
  1. 1 package orca beans
  2. 2 beef or chicken bouillon cubes (I use a vegetarian version)
  3. 2 TBS olive oil, divided
  4. 1 large sweet onion, diced
  5. 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  6. 2-3 stalks celery, chopped
  7. 2-3 carrots, sliced
  8. salt and pepper to taste
  9. 1-2 tsp dried herbs, such as basil, oregano, sage, or parsley, if desired
Instructions
  1. Place the beans in a stock pot with enough water to cover them, and bring to a rolling boil. Let boil for a minute, then drain and rinse.
  2. Place the beans in the Crock-pot, along with the bouillon cubes, and cover with water (I used about 8 cups in the end). Add 1 TBS olive oil (for flavor and body).
  3. Pour 1 TBS olive oil into the stock pot and heat on medium. Add chopped onions and garlic, and allow to cook for a few minutes, until softened. Add celery and carrots, and cook until softened. Add to the Crock-pot, along with seasonings and any more water.
  4. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 3-4.
  5. Adjust seasonings and enjoy!

I got the beans at Whole Foods, but if you don’t have one near you, they are also on Amazon in a pack of 4.  Don’t worry, you will love them!

I even made this soup on New Years’ Day last year, in place of the traditional “lucky” black-eyed-pea soup, since no one in our house likes black-eyed-peas… #sorrynotsorry
