Bean Soup the Simple Way

Super Simple Salad

Buy a bag of 14 different beans or mix them yourself.  Soak overnight.  Drain, rinse, add to slow cooker insert on stove.  Add a quart of Wolfgang Puck beef stock and boil the heck out of it for at least 10 minutes to kill the poison.  Add water to replace what left the pot.  Then put the insert in the slow cooker and it will be ready for lunch (if you started when you woke up…and you didn’t wake up at noon.)

14 bean soup

Red Kidney Bean Poisoning is an illness caused by a toxic agent, Phytohaemagglutnin (Kidney Bean Lectin). This toxic agent is found in many species of beans, but it is in highest concentration in red kidney beans (Phaseolus vulgaris).

Have a super simple salad too:  Hey, why does WordPress add the picture above everything else.  So annoying.
