Yield: 8-10 servings
Time to make: 1½ hours.
Prior preparation needed
Soak kidney beans at least overnight. For best results soak for 2 days.
This is a truly delicious soup and quite simple to make.
I had to guess somewhat at the procedure, for not all the ingredients are mentioned in the instructions. So I added the red onion along with the carrots and string beans, and the hot green pepper along with the potato and tomato. Be sure to dice the potato very small as it gets very little cooking.
