Justin Wilson Looking Back: Red Bean Soup

Serves 6-8 people


  • 1 pound of dried red beans, washed really well
  • 1 cup of dry white wine
  • Onion powder to taste
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Chopped green onions


Place the beans in a large mixing bowl, cover generously with water, and let soak overnight. Drain

Put the beans in a medium-size pot, add the wine and water to cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce the fire to a medium-low, cover, and cook until the beans mash easily, adding more water if you need to. Season with onion and garlic powder.

Put the cooked beans in a food processor, add salt if necessary, and process to make a nice, thick soup, adding enough water to get the right consistency. Reheat if necessary.

Add green onions to the soup when serving.
