Kosher Romanian Bean Soup

  • 2 cups dried lima beans
  • 8 cups cold water
  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and quartered
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 vegetable bouillon cube
  • 2 tablespoons corn oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt (optional)
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste


Soak lima beans in cold water overnight. Drain the lima beans and rinse in several changes of water to float away as many loosened shells as possible. Place in crockpot with 8 cups fresh water, the chopped onion, carrot, garlic and bouillon cube. Cover tightly and cook 18-24 hours, until beans are very tender. Remove from heat and let cool a little.

In the meantime, heat the oil in a skillet and saute the finely diced onion until it is very brown. Ladle a small amount of soup at a time into blender or bowl of a food processor and puree until all soup is pureed. Return to pot and stir in browned onions. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste. Makes 8 to 10 servings. Freezes well
