The dried beans were ready to cook last night, but I was not. I drained them and placed into an air tight container. This afternoon I finished assembling the soup. It went together very fast. I think I'd like to add the parsley the last 10 minutes of cooking. Thank you for posting. Made for team Soup-A-Stars during ZWT9 2013
