Frontier Bean Soups

Beans are an excellent nutrition source for fibroid shrinkers. But to be honest sometimes I run out of ideas what to do with them.

I've been weeding through the food my husband brought to our new home from his batchelor pad (out with the StoveTop Stuffing, laden with hydrogenated oils and MSG...). Came across a mysterious plastic bag with Frontier Soups Indiana Harvest Sausage Lentil Soup mix in it, and the ingredient list did not look scary so I made it for dinner tonight, sans sausage. It was delicious! Usually I avoid soup mixes like these because they are so laden with salt, but not this one -- I actually ended up adding salt at the table!

I went ahead and ordered a few more from the site just now:

California Gold Rush White Bean Chili
Holiday Gathering Cranberry Bean Soup
Louisiana Red Bean Gumbo
Chicago Bistro French Onion Soup

Don't those sound yummy?

Something good to have in the cupboard when there's no time to plan a meal. They also will send a free recipe book on how to do these in a crockpot.

Sounds like a great soup. I will have to try it out. Why was it so mysterious?

Oh, just because my husband had torn a hole in the bag so he stuffed the whole thing in another plastic bag, and the beans leaked out all over inside the bag so it looked really rag-tag. And also that there is no recipe on the bag you have to go to the website.

It occurred to me today as I ate the leftovers that this would have benefited from adding a couple of pieces of konbu seaweed at the beginning of cooking, both for flavor and additional fibroid-fighting action.
