The recipe on the back made a delicious soup. The only drawback is that the beans took a lot longer to cook then what was in the directions.

Delicious Hearty Soup

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).

Whole Grains and Bean Soup Mix

Bob's Red Mill, Vegi Soup Mixと混ぜて使ってます。 単体ではあまりおいしくはありませんでした。 夏だとすぐ発酵してしまうので、冬に使わせてもらってます。
Bob's should eliminate the Sesame Seeds

Sesame Seeds are nonsensical in this product. They float in the soup. When I see them floating I think 'bugs' rather than delicious. Also it took a lot longer to cook than 1.5 hours - even with overnight soaking! It was more like 3 hours of cooking and the barley was still chewey. Maybe the product was kind of old. I used it within a week of receiving it from IHerb.

Beans need soaking
Posted by Reviewer2334038 on Dec 19, 2011
I find that this bean soup mixture is easier on digestion if the beans are soaked for 8 hours or overnight before cooking. The instructions do not mention soaking but should.
