10 Bean Soup

"Yes, another soup recipe! We really love a hot bowl of soup on a cold winter day for lunch. The challenge is keeping it low fat and healthy. This bean soup is fantastic! It makes alot and it freezes well. You can really use any favorite bean mixture (dry) or use your own! I buy the 10 Bean mix in bulk at a local grocery store. It also has some pearl barley thrown in there too!"

  1. I loved this recipe.
  2. The soup was really delicious. I cooked it in my slow cooker for 7 hours, but did sauté the carrots, celery, onion, and garlic before adding them with the bean mixture, tomatoes, vegetable and chicken broth. I added the frozen green beans and corn at the end when I re-heated it on the stove. My only suggestion is that the frozen green beans aren't necessary. I think they're superfluous to the recipe. However, the corn is good in it.


  1. I changed it to fresh cut tomatoes out of the garden, left off the green beans and added a fresh zucchini chopped in chunks and the frozen corn at the end. I did all Vegetable broth to keep it vegetarian and added 2 T McCormick Smokehouse maple seasoning, salt and pepper for seasoning. Thank you for the recipe! Piper


I have always loved to cook. I really love to try new recipes! RecipeZaar is perfect for looking for new recipes. It's the first place I go when looking for something new! My husband and I moved to Northeast Arizona (up in the mountains) in April (2007). We live near Show Low. The summer was absolutely beautiful! It never got to 100 degrees! Coming from Phoenix, we both enjoy being away from the heat and the city. Our first snow this year was absolutely gorgeous! My recipe ratings pretty much follow the star system. I will usually make a recipe as is the first time. I say usually but I do still change things sometimes. I try to be fair if I have made changes. I will rate 5 stars if we LOVE it and it will be a regular dish around our house. 4 stars if we really liked it and 3 stars if it was just OK but we wouldn't make it again. I realize everyone's tastes are different so I do try to be gentle. Cooking can be a very personal thing to someone. Another creative outlet for me is beading. I love to make beaded jewelry.
