15 Bean Soup

Hi everyone!  Today's recipe is really a super quick dinner idea that simply requires some stove time.  You might not even consider this a "recipe", but let me at least put the idea in your winter food ideas to try!  I am a busy mom to two baby girls so dinner prep often needs to be quick.  With that said, we also try to eat filling, low-fat meals that my older girl will like.  This meal definitely fits all those requirements!
I encourage you to check out the dry beans/rice aisle at your local Wal-Mart or grocery store because that is where I found this 15 bean soup mix.  To make the beans you simply put them in a pot of water and cook them for about an hour and a half.  There is a recipe on the back that includes ham, onion, etc.  if you wish to make the beans a bit more tasty.  However, we eat them as is and are always pleased!  If we have any ham in the fridge we add this to the soup as well.  Overall this is a healthy, filling meal that is also inexpensive!  It would go great with Becca's Sweet Homemade Cornbread, found here!

Happy Eating!
