A few people have commented that some of Bob's soups are "too hard" or "the sesame seeds look like floating bugs" (really!). You have to soak the beans overnight! This really cuts down on the cooking time. Yes there are some different textures in the soup but these are BEANS! (hehe) One idea that gives the soup a even texture is to blend it (in a blender) when it is cooked to a completely smooth texture or slightly chunky texture. It is more like green pea soup which some people are more used to. Add a smoked sausage/wiener/ham and YUM. Definitely try the curry soup recipe on the back, add carrots and potatoes and you have a delicious subtle curry soup. I used 3 tbsp of plain curry powder and a tsp of garam marsala and a tsp of hot curry powder. Experiment! With overnight soaking, the beans take 1.5 hours (boil and simmer) or a few hours in a crock pot (my preferred method).
Best soup mix

This is the best soup mix ever! I made one batch using chicken broth & another using vegetable broth. Also added some ham chunks, but would be great without it. Love the grains added. Much better than just beans.
