Hearty 15‑Bean and Vegetable Soup
Dry bean soup mixes promise a shortcut to a flavorful bean soup. We wanted one that actually delivered on that promise.
Why This Recipe Works
Brining the beans in our 15-Bean and Vegetable Soup recipe softened their skins and evened out the cooking time. Using a stovetop-to-oven cooking method allowed the beans to cook gently and evenly. Supermarket white and dried porcini mushrooms added an appealing meaty texture to our bean soup, while Swiss chard lent textural contrast.
