This is simply lean beef and kidney beans in a delicious cinnamon and cumin-scented stew, with lots of parsley and chives and a splash of lemon juice. The unusual color is from turmeric, and it's best served with rice.
Delicious, hearty, and healthy soup! From Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. The original recipe calls for 2 T. butter instead of olive oil. And if I have a rind of parmesan leftover, I'll throw it in while it's simmering...but it's very tasty w/o.
