Good eating at low cost. That's the name of the recipe on the back of the navy bean package. And they are right about that.
1 12 oz bag of navy beans
2 celery stalks
1 medium onion
1 bay leaf
1 teasponn liquid smoke
salt and pepper
Make sure to wash and sort the beans first and then soak overnight. After soaking, rinse and put in a good soup pot or dutch oven and fill with a quart of water and the chopped carrots, celery, onion, liquid smoke and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 1-2 hours or until beans are soft. I then add the salt and pepper and carefully blend 1/2 the mixture in my blender or you could use a stick blender.
Adjust the seasonings and you are done. Totally stick to your ribs kinda soup that cost pennies per serving.
My receipts from Saturday, total spent, $21.50.
I'm planning to make pasta with a white wine, shallot and mushroom sauce. Vegetarian chili and I'm not sure yet what I'm doing with the asparagus. I hang my head in shame over the not one but two bags of chips purchased. I was almost to the checkout stand and there was a display for Earth Balance Chips. One plain with sea salt and the other with vegan cheddar cheese. What can I say? I can attest to the beauty of the cheddar cheese chips, they were delicious. Also, last week I purchased some frozen spring rolls, not a fan, but maybe it's just me. Anyway that's it. Hope your Tuesday isn't terrible.
