Recipes from the Pantry

Black Bean Stew

Serves 4


1 pint canned sausage chunks
2 pints (or 1 quart) black beans
1/4 cup dehydrated tomatoes
2 Tbsp dehydrated celery
1/4 cup dehydrated corn
1/4 cup dehydrated onion
1/4 cup dehydrated mushroom
1/4 cup dehydrated sliced okra
Spices to Taste (pepper, basil, garlic powder, etc.)
Be careful adding salt as the canned sausage and black beans will already have salt in them.


Put everything in a good sized soup pot - include the liquid from the canned black beans and sausage chunks.  You can add a small amount of liquid (water, stock, etc.) if you prefer a soup.

Bring pot to boil, then turn down to simmer and cover.
Simmer for about 15-20 minutes.
Turn off and let sit for 15-20 minutes.
Bring back to simmer and when ready, ladle into soup bowl.
