Romanian Bean Soup

Time: 18 hrs 15 mins


  • 2 cups dried lima beans
  • 8 cups cold water
  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and quartered
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 knorr vegetable bouillon cube
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt (optional)
  • fresh ground black pepper


  • 1 Soak lima beans in cold water overnight. Drain the lima beans and rinse in several changes of water to float away as many loosened shells as possible.
  • 2 Place beans in crockpot with 8 cups fresh water, the chopped onion, carrot, garlic and bouillon cube. Cover tightly and cook 18 to 24 hours on low until beans are very tender.
  • 3 Remove from heat and let cool a little.
  • 4 In the meantime, heat the butter in a skillet and saute the finely diced onion until it is very brown.
  • 5 Ladle a small amount of soup at a time into blender or bowl of a food processor and puree until all soup is pureed. Return to pot and stir in browned onions. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste.
