15 Bean Soup {Mom’s Kitchen}

It has been a while since I shared one of my Mom’s recipes and that is a shame because they are so tasty!  Today I am sharing her 15 Bean Soup–healthy and filling but light enough for the summer.

15 Bean Soup Recipe

When we were in Europe recently for two weeks my Mom watched our son Will for one of the weeks at our house.  On our return from our trip we were exhausted, jet lagged and in no mood to cook! What did my Mom have waiting for us when we got home?  A huge container of her 15 Bean Soup. Now that’s a great Mom!

We ate that 15 Bean Soup for the first few days home and it was both healthy and filling.  This soup is vegetarian and full of nutrients.

The recipe also makes a lot of soup so you will have enough to freeze a few batches for later.

For those who have never made a 15 Bean Soup you can usually find the package of beans that you need in the dried bean section of your grocery store.  The bag actually says “15 beans” on it (I have also seen 16 beans before, either is fine).

This looks so hearty and delicious! I like the tip to soak the beans overnight. I am always hesitant to cook with raw beans because they take so long.
