Bean soup

Bean soup


  • dry beans, such as great northern or navy
  • onion, carrot, maybe celery
  • leftover cooked sausage

Economic apocalypse means it’s a good time to cook some beans! First soak the dry beans overnight, maybe with a little lemon juice added to the water. Discard the soaking liquid and rinse the beans a bit. Put them in a pot, cover with water, and simmer until they’re tender and maybe a little overdone – I think that’s when the oozy bean soupy stuff happens. When they’re nearly done, dice up the onion, carrot, and celery and soften in oil, butter, or (ideally) the pan you cooked bacon in that morning. Dice up the leftover sausage and add that to the beans with the softened vegetables. Simmer a while then enjoy!
