La Paz Road Bean Soup instructions
- Soften half the carrots, all the diced yellow onions and celery in the EVOO. When translucent, add rosemary and the beans, and cover with ~2" water. Let simmer for 45-minutes to 1 hour, until the beans are soft and the liquid is thickened from the beans..
- Add the remaining carrot, tomato, and zucchini, diced, to the pot and let simmer for an additional 15-20 minutes. When vegetables are tender, add the small pasta and the final seasonings — red crushed pepper, soy sauce and lemongrass. When the pasta is tender, it?s ready to serve..
- I also add a twist of two of dried porcini mushrooms from my grinder, but if you don't have it, don't worry. Fresh mushrooms don't really work well here..
