Diet Recipe for Three Bean Soup

While one type of bean rocks a healthy diet plan - just think about what three types of beans from the awesome Legume Family can accomplish!

By using different species, we'll get a flavor boost - actually, unique flavors that can be mixed and matched because if you wish, you can substitute different beans for the ones in our recipe to create new flavors of soup.

Recipe Ingredients for Our 3 Bean Soup

Take note that all of the following cans of foods necessary for this recipe are of medium size variety.

1 can of red, brown or pinto beans - all of these are very similar in flavor and texture.
1 can of dark OR light kidney beans
1 can of black beans
1 can of diced sweet petite tomatoes of any seasoning or variety
1 cup of the following fresh vegetables, chopped and sauteed: onion, bell pepper, cilantro

Simply combine, heat and enjoy.  See Another Bean Soup Recipe

Cast Iron Cornbread Recipe

This recipe goes very well with our 3 Bean Soup. When I think about preparing this recipe, I remember it in 'cups'.

The Recipe Ingredients

1 cup of stone-ground cornmeal, yellow, white or blue
1 cup of milk - use regular or low fat
1 cup of white all-purpose flour, sifted
1 egg, large
1 Tablespoon of baking powder, sifted
1/3 cup of corn, canola or peanut oil
1/4 cup of granulated sugar, optional

How to Prepare Our Cast Iron Cornbread Recipe

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Add a little of the oil to the cast iron skillet that you're going to use. If you like bacon grease - then go for it! When enjoyed in minimal amounts, almost all foods can be part of a healthy diet plan.

Bean Soup RecipesPlace the skillet into the oven until the oil is hot but not scorching hot.

Place the wet ingredients into a deep bowl and whisk until the egg is blended into the milk.

Quick Buttermilk Recipe

If you'd like, you can use buttermilk rather than whole or reduced fat milk. If you don't have buttermilk on hand, add a teaspoon of white distilled vinegar to the cup of milk and allow it to sit for about five minutes. It will quickly sour and is a close match to buttermilk in recipes.

Next add the dry ingredients and stir to incorporate. Add the batter to the hot skillet and bake until the center of the cornbread is done and the surface is golden brown - generally about 25 to 35 minutes, depending upon the temperature level of the oven used.
