Soup - Bean - Not Your Usual

I made soup from alubias tolosanas... these are sort of kidney beans from the Basque country. They are almost black (actually very deep purple).

Soak beans at least 24 hours

Cook onion, pepper, garlic, bacon and pork (I used a blade steak, a ham hock would work). You want the pork browned a bit, and the onion pepper and garlic soft but not browned.

Add beans, chicken stock and the pork/bacon/onion/etc to a pot. Add some smoked paprika (sweet) or pimenton and ground pepper, cover beans (I added chicken stock to top it off). Cook until the beans are getting tender (this took me at least 45 minutes at a good simmer). Add chorizo (the kind that looks like andouille sausage, which would make a good sub) adn blood sausage (I used blutwurst cut into chunks) and another pinch of pimenton or paprika cook at least 30 minutes more.

Correct for salt and pepper


It is densely flavored stuff, and really tasty. I suggest beano before eating.
