I invented a new recipe tonight!
It was really really good, too.
So I'm posting it so I can find it again. (I always forget the recipes I create....)
1 can kidney beans
1/8-1/4 tsp garlic powder (depending on how much you like)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp italian seasoning
Mix these in a large soup pot, mashing the beans slightly. Then add:
2-3 ribs of celery, split in half lengthwise and then sliced thin
2 carrots, split in fourths lengthwise and sliced into small triangles
1 tbsp minced dried onion or 1 med onion, minced
1 can crushed tomatoes
3 c water.
Bring this to a boil and then turn the heat down, cover, and let simmer for half an hour. Then add 1 beef bouillon cube and 1/3 c alphabet or tiny star noodles. Return to a boil and cook 15 minutes or until the noodles are done.
Top each serving with:
2 slices of pepperoni, cut into fourths
and any other pizza toppings you like (olives would be fantastic).
