Jhenn's White Bean Soup

I winged making some white bean soup last night. turned out pret..err really good! You can use any mix of white kidney beans, white beans, & great northern beans (as long as its 3 cans total).

2 cans great northern beans
1 can white beans
2 T olive oil
2 T minced garlic
1/2 chopped onion
1C marinara sauce (or tomato, etc)
1 1/2 C water
boullion cube
1t celery salt (or more/less to taste)
pepper to taste

heat olive oil. add onions- cook until almost translucent. Add garlic- cook for no more than one minute.
add water and boullion cube and tomato sauce. Start to bring to a boil.
Add half mashed beans (can puree some of them, I mashed most of them to make it really thick) and salt and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Makes 4-6 hearty bowls.

Bonus: I added 1 1/2 C cooked macaroni shells for additional yummy texture!


I've been seriously considering buying Bragg's Liquid Aminos for some time now...

I don't have any friends who use it, does anyone here? What do you think of it?
It's to my understanding that it's basically a soy sauce substitute..which I use quite often, so I would be using Bragg's a lot as well..

Linseed oil

Yes, another post (sorry).

Ok, so I just tried soem linseed oil... IT'S RANK! And people are meant to drink 2 tablespoons PER DAY???

I just don't know how I am going to do this, I want to try, but right now I just don't know if I'll be able to...

So, any good ideas? Personally I can't have much sweet stuff (at all) because of my belly's hypersensitivity, but I know my bf could try it in smoothies and shakes etc. The only other thing I can think of is salads... And I can't help but think that that flavour is going to smother anything it's with...

So, any more ideas?

And CAN it be heated or cooked with? Or does this definitely dstroy the omega oils?

(no subject)

does anyone know good fast recipes and any crockpot recipes other than just the basic vegtable soup?

[ also, what's everyone's favorite vegtable broth? i keep looking but they have all been too bland for me, even when i add seasoning]
