Briana's Fun Bean Soup
THM:E, low fat
Serves: 3
  • 3 cups cooked beans of choice (if using canned, rinse and drain them)
  • 3-4 cups of water, according to desired thickness
  • Cooked veggies of choice - you can just clean out the fridge, basically. Use veggies without a lot of added fat or you'll end up with a crossover, Trim Healthy Mamas.
  • Onion slices
  • Minced garlic (don't skimp on this!)
  • Dash of Liquid Smoke
  • Hot sauce
  • Dash of vinegar
  • Chicken bouillon (don't skimp on this!)
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Dill weed
  • Lots of fresh cilantro (dried just isn't the same)
  • Sprinkle of mozzarella cheese for topping (skim mozzarella is great)
  1. Heat the beans and liquid in a saucepan until hot. Blend the beans, liquid, and the desired amounts of all the ingredients together in the blender until smooth (be careful when blending hot liquids and vent the blender to relieve pressure). Taste and add more of whatever is lacking. Add more liquid if desired. Reheat the soup before serving if you like. Yields about 3 servings.
