Hot and poor legume soup

This soup contains legumes but you will not fart from it 🙂

—- PICTURE COMING —-

INGREDIENTS STEPS
  • 3-4 cups of small-bean legumes
  • 6 potatoes
  • 1 l water
Clean legumes with cold water. Drop them in a big pot, add more water than to cover them and turn on high heat. Cover with a lid. Clean and cut potatoes into 1,5×1,5 cm cubes, approx., throw into the pot. When soup boils turn the heat to medium or lower, so it is still boiling but on smaller heat, cover.
  • 1 tsp of cumin
  • 1 tsp of marjoram
  • 1 tbsp of colorful pepper
  • 1-2 tsp of Himalayan salt
  • 1 leek, 1 big or few smaller onions
Throw cumin and marjoram into the pot – this is mandatory, otherwise you will fart after the soup. Take pepper and grind it – best with a mortar, then taste will be a lot better. Throw pepper and salt into the soup as well. Clean and cut leek into 1-1,5 cm slices. Clean onions and throw them without cutting into the soup. Add leek as well. Keep boiling on small/medium heat for 10-15 minutes until legumes and/or potatoes are only slightly raw.
  • 15 fresh beans
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup of sweet cream for taste
  • water
Crush garlic cloves and throw them into the pot. After the soup has been boiling on medium/small heat for some time and you tasted it to see the legumes and/or potatoes are almost ready: clean and cut fresh beans into 2cm slices and throw them into the pot – adding them in the end will make sure they are not overcooked. At the same time you can add cream (optional). After it all boiled you can still add a lot of water – this time it has to be boiling – to have more soup, if so you might want to add some salt for taste.
Serve with chives or coriander on top!

This soup is called ‘poor’ because it is cheap. Legumes, potatoes, a leek don’t cost fortune and are main ingredients. Spices ? You anyway should have those.
