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.
