17 Bean and Barley Soup

Look at this beautiful assortment of beans! I love all the different shapes, beautiful colors and textures of this "17 Bean & Barley Mix" by Trader Joe's. It is a bag full of beans and barley, great for making stews or soups. There is no seasoning so I added vegetable broth, bay leaves, extra barley, carrots, leeks, garlic and spices and made a very healthy, comforting soup. It was the perfect dinner for this cold autumn evening.


  1. YUM! Although, that's a lot of dang beans. Hehe. :)

  2. I counted them just to see if there really were 17 kinds of beans and it was correct :-)

  3. Yum! I haven't tried this one, I have to look at our TJ's. Have you tried the Bob's Red Mill bean soup mixes? It is like this one but different types.
