Fabulous Bean Soup

READY IN: 4hrs 10mins
Recipe by BB2011

This soup is delicious and healthy! It's very easy and very satisfying. It gets much thicker if allowed to sit in the refrigerator over night (I recommend doing this). Great additions are shredded cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips. It's also vegan.

This was very good, as far as bean soups go. I tend to prefer bean based recipes like soup, chili, baked beans, etc... with some kind of pork so for this recipe I always add either chopped ham or bacon. My mom always used ham hocks but those are not available at the average metro grocery store.
