Weekend before last I made a pot of soup that was raved over by everyone who had it.
It was a mistake in action that turned out amazing so I thought I would share the recipe.
I was making 15 bean soup and let the beans sit for 2 days soaking since I did not have time to make it the first night. On the second night I cooked the beans for two hours before tossing them completely. They smelled sour and had gone bad while they sat soaking.
Well, while the beans were cooking I chopped a ton of veggies and sauteed everything. So now I had a ton of vegetables ready to go in the pot and no beans or stock to add them to. I called Mom and chatted for a bit about what I was making and we went though my cabinets figuring out what would work. The recipe below is what came out of it.
1 cup diced carrots
2 cup diced cabbage
1 cup diced celery
1 cup diced onion
(olive oil to coat pan and salt and pepper to season)
-Saute the vegetables to just soft with still a bit of crunch.
In a stock pot combine the following.
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
1 vegetable bullion cube
1-2 cup wild rice mix
1 can mexican corn
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can diced seasoned tomatoes (I used the kind with jalapenos and onion)
1 diced jalapeno
1 tbsp lime juice
2 cups shredded chicken, already cooked.
2 cups polish kielbasa sausage, cut into thin rounds.
Cook on medium till everything is tender. This took about 1 hour for me.
