Soup! I LOVE SOUP!
Chickpeas! I LOVE CHICKPEAS!
Lamp! I LOVE LAMP! (Name that movie)
I love this soup! Am I getting obnoxious yet?
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and ate to their hearts content! It’s such a great time to spend with family and friends. We kept it low key here a Friendsgiving and a Thanksgiving potluck hosted by hour RV park. Unfortunately, I just checked the weather for tomorrow and we are in for another drastic temperature drop. It’s currently a beautiful 79 degrees and tomorrow the high will be 43! What’s the deal. I say it’s time for soup! On a cold day I like to curl-up with a blanket on my lap and a big bowl of warm soup. Especially this soup, because it’s my favorite!
The first time I ever had Spanish Bean Soup was at the Silver Ring in Downtown Lakeland, FL. They had daily special of a half Cuban sandwich with a cup of soup. But most of the time I would just get a big bowl of Spanish Bean soup with bread and butter, it’s divine.
When we moved away from Florida I would crave a bowl of Spanish Bean soup. The only way to curb my craving was to make it myself. Chickpeas, potatoes, andouille and onions simmer together in a savory chicken broth to make big bowls of happiness. Or a bunch of little bowls of happiness, it depends if you want to share.
If you are craving something a little lighter try this chunky roasted tomato soup. But, of course, everyone loves a classic Sancocho (Puerto Rican Beef Stew). If you want something hearty and loaded with aromatics and spices you need to try this Moroccan Lamb Stew with Harissa and Garbanzos.
