Not really so much of a recipe per say, just good ole soup on a damp chilly day. I was kinda wet and cold when I came home from work, so I checked the fridge and pantry and came up with this:
1/2 bag of northern beans.
1/2 bag of navy beans. (both leftover from previous meals)
1/2 cup of barley.
1 medium yellow onion chopped.
3 carrots chopped.
3 stalks of celery chopped.
1/2 lb of white mushrooms sliced.
2 potatos cubed small.
1 can of tomatoes with green chiles.
6 cloves of garlic minced.
3 bay leaves.
1 tsp thyme.
1 Tbsp. chipotle powder.
Ground pepper to taste.
1 large ham bone with lots of meat attached.
1 qt. chicken stock.
1 qt. duck stock. (had both in the freezer from previous meals)
I chose the quick soak method for the beans, (bring to a boil for 2 minutes, cover remove from heat, soak for one hour)
Drain beans, add to pot with stock and ham bone, (meat removed).
Bing to a simmer for 1/2 hour. Add veggies and spices, simmer for 1/2 hour. Add barley, reserved ham meat and canned tomatoes, simmer 1/2 hour. Remove ham bone from the pot, pull any meat from the bone, chop meat and add back to the pot. Check beans and barley for tenderness.
Taste and adjust for seasoning.
Just good ole pantry and fridge soup
