Hearty 16-Bean Soup
Hearty 16-Bean Soup
When we bought the wheat berries for my grain mill, we went ahead and added a 6-gallon bucket of 16-bean soup mix. The shipping was moderate because we already had a good sized shipment coming, and the price per pound was WAY cheaper than an already cheap meal that much cheaper. The lack of any meat or dairy in this dish (including the bread bowl) makes it the perfect meal for Lent or a Daniel Fast.
2 cups 16-bean soup mix (You can use the 15-bean soup mix that you find in the grocery store. Just discard the seasoning packet.)
1 medium onion
1 can diced tomatoes
1 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp Kosher salt
½ tsp fresh ground pepper
large pan with lid
Cover beans with cold water (by at least 2 inches) and put the lid on them. Soak overnight.
Cover beans with cold water (by at least 2 inches) and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and put the lid on them. Let them stand for at least 3 hours.
Pour back into pan and cover with hot tap water.
Add the salt, pepper, and seasoning. Dice the onion and add to the pan.
Add a can of tomatoes.
Bring to a boil. Turn the heat down and simmer for 2-3 hours.
Serve in a bread bowl if you want.

I love this recipe. Instead of diced tomatoes I added tomato juice and it was just as good. I think next time I make it I am going to slice some beef sausage and add it to the bowls as I serve them. It goes great with the soup!
yummy looking and so healthy! tfs!
Tasty looking soup!
bread is not Daniel Fast acceptable. No breads with yeast. SORRY!
Hi Bee. Some people consume leavened bread during a Daniel Fast and others don’t. It really depends on your personal convictions and we prefer not to be overly legalistic. Obviously, if you choose not to consume leavened breads during the fast, you could simply eat this 16-bean soup in a regular bowl instead of a bread bowl and that should suffice nicely. Thanks for your comment and God Bless.
