Mediterranean Bean Soup (p. 134)

I've had my eye on this recipe for a while, mostly just because it looked simple and I generally have most of the ingredients lying around my house.

It's just sauteed onions and garlic with beans (soaked overnight) and boiling water added in. Season it with thyme, parsley, a bay leaf, and salt and pepper, and then just let it simmer until the beans are cooked, which for me took about an hour and a half.

Unfortunately, this just wasn't all that interesting, flavor-wise. I'll finish it, but I'm not excited about it. Well, at least it was cheap.

onion -- $.55
Total Cost of Mediterranean Bean Soup: $.55
($.14 per serving)

  1. At least you tried and you now know. I have a great, not too expensive bean soup you might want to try once you finished with your challenge. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary
