These blue beauties are rewarding to see while doing my spring yard work clean-up ( I know, I know, I'm slow). Maybe I'm pacing myself?
Anyways, the temperatures outside are still chill enough to make it rewarding to come inside and warm up with a bowl of this tasty soup. Don't let all those beans scare you off. Just put some seaweed in your soup. Adding kombu to the soup does seem to help with the gas factor caused by the beans.
Of course, you could just spend the rest of the day outdoors if you don't want to add the seaweed to your soup ;o)
