Soup 16+


  • 1 Bag of Goya 16 Bean Soup Mix (you will only use 1/2 the bag preparing this recipe)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp of Minced Garlic
  • 1 cup of Chopped Onion
  • 1 Cup of Thinly Sliced Leeks (use only the white and the light green parts)
  • 2 Tbsp of Chopped Fresh Parsley
  • 3 Tbsp of EVOO
  • 1 Tsp of Cracked Pepper
  • 1 Cup of Chopped Carrots
  • 1 Cup of Chopped Celery
  • 1 Fresh Lemon
  • 2 Fresh Bay Leaves
  • 48 oz Organic Chicken Broth Container


Cook your beans and laugh

Step 1

Start with a small pot filled with 3-4 cups of boiling water.

Step 2

Add half the bag of beans to your boiling water, cook the beans until your preferred tenderness. I cook my beans for about 7 minutes because I like them a little al dente. If you go by Goya's 3-4 minute cooking instructions, your beans will be super hard (just sayin'! Sorry Goya). 

Step 3

Drain, rinse and set aside your cooked beans.

Step 4

Heat up your soup pot with 3 Tbsp of EVOO. 

Step 5

Sauté your onions, garlic, leeks and parsley until your onions become translucent. 

Step 6

Add your carrots, celery, 1 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp of pepper and the juice from 1 fresh lemon. Mix all the friends together so everyone gets a chance to get to know one another. 

Step 7

It is time to introduce the party of 16+ beans to the group.

Step 8

Add your chicken broth and your bay leaves. Now we are partying! 

Step 9

Bring to a boil and simmer your soup for about an hour or until your veggies are cooked to your desired tenderness.
