Huge Bean Soup with Sweet Potatoes and Collard Greens

kept bycarriejoy8

"I found these HUUUUGE beans in our Whole Foods bulk bins. I love huge beans! The bigger the better – they have more meat to chew. Last night I soaked them in water and this morning I simmered them for about an hour until they were tender while I did house things. That meant when it was time to make tonight’s dinner I had minimal prep to do.

To make this simple soup, I tossed a few more foods into a pot and simmered for 30 minutes."


1 quart of dried beans, soaked and cooked (about 6 cups after cooking, maybe 3 whole cans worth? You can just eyeball the volume beans as they won’t really change the soup much.)
2 slices of bacon (optional)
1 huge sweet potato, microwaved until its soft and cut into cubes (if you skip microwaving, cook soup a little longer)
2 big carrots, diced
3 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 small bunch collard greens, cleaned and chopped
1 tsp kosher salt
Many grinds of black pepper
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp Garlic Gold Herby Nuggets OR some fresh garlic and a few dried herbs of your choice
