Tomato 4 Bean Soup

Hi All
I made this soup a while back and it turned out very well so I thought I'd share it.

Roughly what I did

2 large leeks finely sliced
2 large carrots grated
4 celery sticks finely sliced leaves and all.
1 cup of cooked black eyed peas
1 cup of cooked barlotti beans
1 cup of cooked butter beans
1 cup of cooked red kidney beans
4 ripe tomatoes chopped
1 jar or tin of tomato puree (not paste)
1 tsp of cayenne pepper
2 tsps of paprika
1 small bunch of fresh parsley chopped
Chicken stock or broth to cover

In your soup pot lightly fry leeks, carrots and celery in a bit of olive oil till translucent. Add stock and all ingredients but the parsley. Simmer gently till all the veggies are tender. Add parsley and simmer 5 more mins.

P.S I cook and freeze my dried beans but tinned would work fine. Add salt and pepper to taste if stock needs it.

That sounds simply yummy, Odette! Being a creamed soup person, I would add a couple generous tablespoons of sour cream after blending it with some of the stock. Maybe even thicken it a tad....or not!

Bravo!

Oh no, please don't turn it in to baby food
The sour cream is nice swirled in at the end or add some cooked shrimp!
