Bonnie's Bodacious Bean Soup

Bonnie_Bean_SoupRecipe by Bonnie Eskenazi
My best food memories are from my childhood.  My dad made this simple navy bean soup every Sunday in the fall & winter.  When it was ready, my sisters and I would sit and savor every drop.




2 large organic yellow onions, chopped
1/2 bag organic navy beans-- soak  in water 4 hours prior 
olive oil
salt & pepper to taste



Fill bottom of stainless steel quart pan with olive oil, very lightly

On medium flame add all onions and brown - caramelize both sides turning every couple of minutes.

Add salt pepper to taste, stir again

Drain beans, add beans and fill with water to 3/4 from top of pan

Half cover and cook on medium for 2 hours -- keep adding water

Last 30 minutes turn off and let sit covered

Beans should been totally soft and onions totally transparent and caramelized

Add fresh ground pepper and serve with lightly toasted pita chips.
