    Something else. Good basic recipe. I boiled the beans in 2 litres of chicken stock for just under an hour. Then I added the tomatoes, onion, garlic, 6 chicken sausages (didn't have/want a ham), cumin, dried chilli flakes and steak seasoning and simmered for 30 minutes. Definitely something to consider for holiday giving. But I will add extra seasoning to the gift package (separated from the beans of course since you have to soak them).  -  29 Sep 2008

    Good basic recipe. I boiled the beans in 2 quarts of chicken broth for just under an hour. Then I added the tomatoes, onion, garlic, 6 chicken andouille sausage links (didn't have/want a ham hock), cumin, red pepper flakes and Monterey Steak Seasoning and simmered for 30 minutes. Definately something to consider for holiday giving. But I will add extra seasoning to the gift package (separated from the beans of course since you have to soak them).  -  04 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    This is fun to put together. I couldn't find dried soybeans anywhere so I simply weighed the remaining 11 bean mix and made sure I had at least 2 cups of beans in every container. I put the beans in a holiday cellophane bag with the recipe attached to the top. I had several friends comment that they haven't made this soup in years and they were looking forward to trying it again. One thing I noticed that the directions omit is the fact that you need to cut up the meat off the ham hock and add it to the pot after you've simmered the beans for 1 hour.  -  05 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
