Nov 9: 13 Bean Soup


A cool day made a Trader Joe’s Spanakopita very appealing for $3.99 or $2.00 per serve.


We pulled our last Ham Bone from the freezer and used it as the foundation for 13 Bean Soup, with cubed Ham.

  • The Ham Bone was free so the Stock had no cost
  • Add 25c per serve for Bay Leaf, Carrot & Onion
  • The 13 Bean Mix was $5.49 and we used half, or 69c per serve
  • Canned Tomatoes add 25c per serve
  • Spinach adds 35c per serve
  • Add 30c for preserved Lemon liquid and Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Italian Bread adds 28c per serve.

This version of the 13 Bean Soup had Tomatoes and Spinach added for a bit more vegetable. We used the salty Preserved Lemon liquid for seasoning, and a little Apple Cider Vinegar to brighten the final flavor. A very tasty Soup for $2.12 per serve.
