Navy Bean Soup

Posted in Uncategorized by thismakessense on July 24, 2009

I am not really a big believer in recipies for soups because they always come out good if you know how to create balance. But if you have not made much soup from scratch before it is worth a go. This recipe might give you some ideas:


  • 8oz dried navy beans
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 7.25oz diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1.5 vegetable water


  1. Combine beans, vegetable broth, tomatoes, onion, celery, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, garlic, and bay leaf in a stock pot
  2. Bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover, and simmer for 2 hours.
  3. Add additional vegetable broth and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for an additional two hours.
  4. Discard bay leaf and serve.

Portion serves 3 large helpings.
