    Dreamgoddess's Note:

    Simple, cheap, hearty and delicious. From Mark Bittman's "How to Cook Everything." I love cause there's no need to presoak the beans.

      Multiplied the recipe 20 times (!) because I work in an industrial kitchen, it was fabulous! VERY simple, and inexpensive. I made 4 additions: sauteed the onions in butter before adding broth; chopped up some celery and sauteed with the onions, added a few bay leaves and some thyme during the simmering. I also soaked the beans previous to cooking. Otherwise, used the ratios exactly according to recipe and it was delicious! Thanks for sharing, it was my first time ever making this type of soup. Everyone loved it.
