Trader Joe's 17 Bean & Barley Soup with Sausage ~ Where have you bean all my life...

Trader Joe's ~ 17 Bean & Barley Soup and Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Sausage

It is freezing cold outside today.  Literally.  It's a perfect day for making some soup.   If you are lucky enough to have a Trader Joe's near you, go get this 17 Bean & Barley Soup Mix ~ a big, colorful bag of dried, mixed beans.  You gotta try this soup! 
It certainly is tasty enough to be eaten as just a bean soup....but, why stop at just beans when you can add some tasty, healthy sausage, too?  There isn't much I don't love from TJ's, but I think their Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Sausage is my favorite item.  It's great in all sorts of meals. Actually, all of their chicken sausages are great.  They have many flavors to choose from, & at about 6 grams of fat each, what's not to love?

I just followed the recipe on the back of the bag, but here is a link for the 17 Bean & Barley Soup recipe. If you don't have a Trader Joe's close by, never fear, just look for one of the mixed bag'o'beans from your grocery store & use that. The more beans it has in it, the merrier!

I'm so glad I tried this bean soup mix, it makes a WONDERFUL pot of soup!  If you are feeling really ambitious, make some corn bread to go with it.  Hmmm, here is another avenue to explore...if you added some okra & more meats/seafood, it would become a fabulous gumbo.  Must remember to try that next time...
