Senate Bean Soup Recipe with Yellow Eyed Beans

Friends Drift Inn Farm Recipes

Yellow Beans keep their two-toned markings when cooked in soup

Bean Soup Recipe

Yellow Eyed beans are crazy good! Cooking up with their distinctive markings intact, they are beautiful to behold. A savory legume, these beans have a creamy chowder texture.


Here’s my take on Steve Sando’s, author of Heirloom Beans Cookbook, Yellow Eyed Senate Soup Recipe. No ham hocks! Trust me, the flavor is so rich you don’t need them!

And if you happen to have some left over, well stay tuned for Yellow Eyed Beans Hearty Luncheon Salad!

If you love to garden, grow some heirloom beans.
