16 Bean Soup

Most large markets carry a bean mixture in their dried bean section. The one I found had 16 varieties. This is a meatless soup, but very filling. It could be made vegetarian by leaving out the chicken bouillon.

1 lb Dried Bean Mixture
1 Onion,Chopped
1/2 c Celery,Sliced
1 Carrot,Sliced
1 T Low Sodium Chicken Bouillon
1 cn Low Sodium Tomatoes
1/2 t Black Pepper
6 c Water

Soak and drain beans. In a large saucepan or Dutch oven combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until beans are tender, about 1 1/2 hours.
