|bean soup with turnip greens|
Blogger also dictates that the picture will be here,
|14 bean soup mix in the pot with no water|
1 lb BB Mixed Beans
3 qts water
2 tsp salt ( used 1/2 tsp)
1 ham hock (left out)
1 tsp chili powder (used two shakes of the chili powder bottle)
1 cup chopped celery (used two ribs)
1 cup chopped onion (used bunch of green onions)
1 large can tomatoes, diced (used small can and should have used two)
2 Tbsp lemon juice (forgot this)
I forgot to heat ham for him, so with his approval I dropped some cold pieces in his HOT soup.
Critique from exbf:
Too much celery (he hates biting celery) He says biting celery is like biting a bug. (no, he has not)
Beforehand, he told me not to put much chili powder.
He said I might as well leave out the turnip greens because he could not taste them...sigh. If I ever make this again, I will put turnip greens in if I have them. He does not think about nutrition!
THEN, he said it was good, taking a quart jar of bean soup I offered for lunch or dinner at his house. The rest, about a quart is more soup than beans. I will cook other beans separately and add to this with another can of tomatoes. Frozen in bags, the soup will be here for his lunch or dinner.
After soup and salad, he then had cantaloupe. I found a cantaloupe that was $1 after a coupon. I was very self-satisfied, thinking I had made dinner from free beans, served leftover ham, and salad from the yard.
Have you ever eaten turnip greens raw or in a salad? Have you ever eaten a dandelion?
