Ingredients

  • 1½ Cup dried mixed beans, such as Pereg Gourmet Soup Mix Beans, rinsed
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 2½ Cups vegetable stock (homemade or store-bought)
  • 2 carrots, peeled and small diced, about 1 cup
  • 1 green bell pepper, small diced
  • 2 Cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Cup diced white onion
  • ½ Cup celery, small diced
  • 2 Teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ Teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • ¼ Cup cilantro, minced
  • Crusty bread, for serving

Directions

Soak the beans overnight in cool water, covering the beans by 2 to 3 inches. The next day, drain and rinse the beans well.

In a large stockpot, cover the beans with cold water by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until beans are tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour, being careful not to overcook. Stir occasionally while cooking. Once cooked, drain and rinse well.

Once the beans are done, heat the olive oil in a large 4-quart heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions, bell peppers, carrots, and celery with ¼ teaspoon of salt, and sauté until slightly soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 more minute.
Add the crushed tomatoes, vegetable stock, cumin, turmeric, cayenne, and beans to the vegetables. Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper, and then garnish with the cilantro and serve with crusty bread.

Bean Cooking Tip

Beans are done when they can be easily mashed with a fork – make sure to test a few in case they have not cooked evenly.
