GREAT NORTHERN WHITE BEAN SOUP : A nice hot bowl of bean soup will warm you on a cold Winter’s eve. It is low in calories (approximately 160/serving), low in cholesterol,has a low glycemic load, is high in dietary fiber and is strongly anti-inflammatory.
Dried beans have enzymes, that prevent our bodies from digesting the proteins in them. Soaking and rinsing the beans, helps to release and wash away these enzymes. So, it is important to rinse, soak and rinse the beans again, before cooking them. This recipe is delicious with Great Northern Beans, but will be just as yummy using other varieties of dried beans.
