White bean soup recipe

Today is )F and snowing (Note to self it can snow also below 32). Earlier it was -10F and not snowing but grey and quite obviously freezing. Last week it was sunny, but we were in the crossover zone (that part of the where F become lower than C). When is this cold what can you eat if not soup? So I will give you soup. To warm up and to cheer myself up.

And I need cheering up, because I just had a meeting with a Realtor and he valued my house about 20k less than every other agent did (and he charges 1% more too). So now I am wondering if he is being too cautious, or if the other 3 agents were too optimistic. What do you think guys? And more importantly, how do you choose a realtor? I guess just choosing the one that says the nicest things about your house is not always the best strategy, is it?


  • 1 can white beans (e.g. great northern beans)
  • 1/4 cup Israeli couscous
  • 2-3 jalapenos (more or less depending on how spicy you want the soup)
  • oil
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Rinse the bean under running water.
  2. In a pot, saute the beans, the diced jalapenos and the Israeli couscous in a bit of oil.
  3. Add enough hot water to cover the beans and couscous and let cook until the couscous is cooked and the beans are partially mashed.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve hot adding a drizzle of oil if you feel so inclined.
