    Any form of bean soup: white beans or lentils or peas etc.

    Usually cooked with the usual soup vegs, such as carrot, onion, celery
    etc. Smoked meat/bones when we have any.

    This is one of my favorite original creations. Love it! I use Meyer

    Middle Eastern Garbanzo Bean Soup

    1 pound dried garbanzo beans
    cooking oil of choice
    1 onion, chopped
    4 small cloves garlic, minced
    1 carrot, chopped small
    cumin, at least 1 teaspoon
    coriander, at least 1 teaspoon
    1/2 t. all spice
    ground pepper to taste
    6 cups chicken stock
    1/3ish cup tahini
    juice of 2 Meyer lemons
    1 garnet yam, cubed (not thematic but very tasty!)
    1/4 cup EACH cilantro and parsley (flat leaf)


    Recipe
    Cook garbanzos. Reserve about half of beans and all of the cooking liquid.

    Heat oil in stock pot. Add onion, saute until translucent. Add garlic
    and continue to cook 2 mins, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Add
    carrots, cook for a few minutes more. Add spices and cook until
    fragrant, a minute or so, stirring constantly. Add stock, 1/2 of cooked
    garbanzos, tahini and lemon juice. When carrots are cooked, bBlitz with
    stick blender. Add remaining garbanzo beans, sweet potato, and spinach.
    Cook until sweet potato is cooked through. Add cilantro and parsley.
    Adjust seasoning (may need a touch more lemon). If soup is too thick,
    dilute with some of the bean cooking liquid.

    I dearly love Ribollita (very similar to some minestrones). Smells
    great when cooking! (Must be all that pancetta cooking...)

    Here's the recipe I use, from Giada diLaurentiis:

    Ribollita

    1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus some for drizzling on bread
    1 onion, chopped
    1 carrot, chopped
    4 ounces pancetta, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, 1 minced and 1 whole
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 tablespoon tomato paste
    1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes
    1 pound frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
    1 (15-ounce) can cannelloni beans, drained
    1 tablespoon herbs de Provence
    3 cups chicken stock
    1 bay leaf
    1 (3-inch) piece Parmesan rind
    4 to 6 ciabatta rolls, halved lengthwise or 1 loaf, sliced
    Grated Parmesan, for serving


    Heat the oil in a heavy large pot over medium heat. Add the onion,
    carrot, pancetta, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook until the
    onion is golden brown and the pancetta is crisp, about 7 minutes. Add
    tomato paste and stir until dissolved. Add tomatoes and stir, scraping
    the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to release all the brown
    bits. Add the spinach, beans, herbs, stock, bay leaf, and Parmesan
    rind. Bring the soup to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30
    minutes.

    Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

    Drizzle the ciabatta halves with olive oil. Toast until golden brown,
    about 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and rub the top of the toasts
    with the whole garlic clove. Place the toasts in the serving bowls and
    ladle the soup over the toasts. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve
    immediately.

    Looks like it would work well for me if I replaced the garbonzos with a
    5 bean mix. Yeah I know that would blow it's Middle Eastern name. But
    nobody in my family is Middle Eastern so nobody would catch on.

    Lentils or split peas made with ham scrap stock.

    1 ham bone and skin from a whole ham
    2 small onions
    4 stalks celery
    4 carrots
    6 cloves garlic
    2 tsp ground lemon peel
    1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
    Salt to taste

    Take the ham bone and skin, add 1 of the small onions, 2 stalks celery,
    2 carrots and 3 cloves of garlic. Chop the veggies and leave the ham
    skin in whole chunks.

    Pressure cook all that with 2 quarts of water for 1 hour.

    Let cool, strain off the stock and salvage any meat bits from the bone
    and the ham skin. Slice the skin into thin strips.

    Discard the bones and cooked veggie scraps.

    Take the stock and add water to bring the volume back up to 2 quarts (8
    cups). Place back into the pressure cooker and add 4 cups of either
    split peas or lentils. Chop the other two carrots, 2 stalks of celery
    and one onion and add it to the top. Add the lemon peel and pepper, then
    salt to personal taste.

    Bring up to pressure and pressure for 25 to 30 minutes.

    Mix well and let sit for 30 minutes or so to mingle properly.

    Serve hot.

    This sounds really interesting, but I'd sub' for Garbanzos. I just
    cannot stand them. :-( It's a texture thing...

    The recipe you posted is not only similar to a minestrone one - it *is*
    a minestrone recipe. It is not any kind of ribollita. Giada de
    Laurentiis does not seem to even know what the word "ribollita" means.

    Too bad. imho lentils have a rich, meaty flavor.
    But in that case, use split peas in the above recipe, or your choice of
    dry beans. Soak the beans with 2 to 3 rinses for 24 hours first.

    I have a lovely pot of navy bean soup in the cooker as I keyboard
    this. I had a wonderful Honeybaked Ham bone that I started it with,
    along with a couple of smoked ham hocks. The DH loves broth-based
    soups of all stripes, but the navy bean soup is his favorite. I prefer
    a long cooked broth, so I let the ham bone and hocks simmer in the
    crockpot all day. Since the DH is observing a low fat diet, I chilled
    the broth overnight and skimmed off the fat the next morning before
    putting it back in the crockpot. I sauteed the thyme, onions and
    garlic in a very small quantity of olive oil, then chucked it in the
    crockpot along with the chicken broth.

    White Bean And Ham Hock Soup

    soups and stews

    1 lb dried small white beans such as navy or great northern
    1 lb smoked ham hocks
    1/4 cup bacon drippings (from 1/2lb bacon); or olive oil
    2 cups chopped onion
    2 tablespoons minced garlic
    4 fresh thyme sprigs
    8 cups chicken broth

    Soak beans in cold water to cover overnight (8 hours). Drain and rinse
    well.

    Simmer ham hocks in 6 cups water in a 3-quart saucepan, partially
    covered, skimming foam as necessary, 1 hour. Reserve 4 cups cooking
    liquid and drain ham hocks. Heat bacon drippings in an 8-quart heavy
    pot over moderate heat until hot but not smoking, then cook onion and
    garlic, stirring, until softened. Add thyme and cook, stirring, 1
    minute. Add soaked beans, broth, ham hocks, and reserved cooking
    liquid and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until beans are
    tender, about 1 hour. Remove ham hocks and shred meat.

    (1# diced tomatoes can be added.)

    Am just the opposite...I like garbanzos in salads because they have a
    texture reminiscent of cheese without all the fat.

    Terry - I'm not sure I understand your definition of "cheese like
    texture". I like garbanzos in salads if provided in a salad bar, but I
    have never considered (and still don't) that they would be a sub for
    cheese. But unless making a salad with either feta or blue cheese, I
    don't often add cheese to my salads.

    LOL made a navy bean soup over the weekend. We had a half ham hock (not
    smoked) which cooked along with the beans. Some vegetables added towards
    the end of cooking as well as more garlic. Came out nice. Dressed it wth
    some olive oil and more black pepper at the table. Glass of wine to go
    with
