    Blue Karma's Note:

    A tasty, light bean soup. Inspired by Lorna Sass' recipe in "Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure". I've eliminated oil and increased the zip. I love that it can be on the table in well under 30 minutes.

      Tastes great, but I'd not call it "light", as it's very hearty and filling. Be sure to serve it with a wedge of lime, the acidity adds a bright, fresh note that bean soups really need. Also, when pressure cooking beans a small amount of oil is recommended to prevent the beans from foaming up and clogging the valves. I used a ham hock in mine, and I agree that a little Mexican chorizo would be a great addition, as it contains vinegar and would also provide a little "chew" to the texture. My skeptical husband really enjoyed this soup.
