This is a perfect soup recipe for when you don’t have a lot of ingredients hanging around the house, plus it’s uber tasty, filling, and satisfying.  I like to soak the beans over night to reduce cooking time to ~ 1 1/2 hours but the recipe below is for just throwing straight on the stovetop.  This would also work fantastic in a crockpot on low for ~ 8 hours or in the instant-pot but I prefer just using a sturdy pot on the stovetop.

  • Total Time: 3 hours 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6
  • Category: Main / Soup
  • Method: Stovetop / Crockpot / InstantPot
  • Cuisine: International

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 cups dried mixed beans or 13 bean soup mix
  • 15 ounces tomato sauce
  • 8 1/2 cups broth (vegetable or chicken)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh oregano, chopped – optional as garnish

Instructions

  • Bring a stockpot to medium high heat and add the oil.  When hot, add the onions and the salt (the salt helps break down the onion quicker).  Cook ~ 7 minutes or until translucent (turn down the heat if they start to brown).
  • Stir in the chili powder and garlic
  • Add beans, tomato sauce, and broth.
  • Stir and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer ~ 3 hours or until beans are soft and tender.
  • Add salt to taste and garnish with fresh oregano.  Happy Eating!  Beckie

Notes

  • Don’t have broth?  Use water and add salt to taste.
  • Wanna add a little more umami?  Add some shredded Parmesan cheese as a garnish.

Things In My Kitchen:

  • Sturdy Cast Iron Stock Pot – 6 quart.  You’ll never have to buy another again.
  • Better Than Bouillon – I’m trying to cut down on the weight of my groceries and also being conscious of the amount of waste, either in the trash or recycling.  I love this easy organic soup base.
