Lima Bean and Leek Soup

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Soups, Beans, Vegetarian

 Ingredients List

  • 8 c Water
  • 1/3 c Lentils
  • 1/3 c Lima Beans
  • 1/3 c Wild rice
  • 1 lg Leek
  • 1/4 c Tomato sauce or Ketchup
  • 4 ds Hot sauce or more
  • 4 ds Fish sauce
  • 4 ds Soy sauce
  • 2 Chicken bouillon cubes


This recipe would be vegan if the fish sauce and bouillon cubes are
eliminated and vegetable bouillon and extra soy used in their place. I am
sure it would taste even better with the addition of a good stewing
chicken, but it was created from the materials on hand one weekend. The
lentils are long cooked until they disintegrate to form a meaty looking and
tasting stock, an effect that is enhanced by the tomato.

Bring the water to a boil in a soup pot and add lentils; simmer covered 1/2
hr or more. Add the lima beans and cook another 1/2 hour. Add the rice and
cook another 20 min. Add the chopped green portions of a large or 2 medium
well washed leek[s] [They are sandy and there is always sand trapped in the
outer leaves] and simmer 10 min. Add the sliced white portion of the leek
and the remaining ingredients. Simmer 15 min and serve.
