(Sorry about the lovely picture, I forgot about taking a picture until we were done eating)
I've had a couple of requests for this recipe. Problem is that I just throw things in and I'm never consistent, but here it is roughly
16 Bean Soup
1-2 cups 16 Bean Mix (dried)
1 can tomatoes (stewed, diced, whatever your preference)
2 cans V8 juice or tomato sauce
1 cup Beef bouillon (I put extra beef base in sometimes too)
Onions or Onion powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 package of Turkey Bacon (I've also used Turkey Ham, or Beef Summer sausage)
This recipe made about 3 qts, I think.
Soak the beans overnight, rinse and drain.
Add the Beans, Turkey Bacon, tomatoes, spices, etc...
Shred carrots and add
Top off with V8 juice and cook in crock-pot until done. :o) (If that isn't enough liquid, you can add more bouillon)
When the beans are soft, I puree about half of the soup in the chopper, and add it back in, (or if you have a wand chopper thing, I use that too)
