Red bean chorb bean soup. Step by step recipe

  1. Take the beans: we need 500 grams. Soak the beans for the night in cold water so that it swells.
  2. Tip. It is possible, in rare cases, to replace raw beans with canned ones.
  3. The next step is to chop the vegetables into small cubes: cut onions, carrots and celery.
  4. We will cook the soup in a large pan: it’s more convenient than in a saucepan. We take a large frying pan, put it on the stove, pour vegetable oil. Add vegetables to the pan: onions, carrots, celery - and fry on low heat for 7 minutes.
  5. Add bell pepper and finely chopped tomatoes to the pan, mix everything and continue simmering over low heat for another 3 minutes.
  6. So the time has come for our beans. Beans are added to all vegetables in a pan, add 1.5 cups of cold water. Continue to cook over medium heat under a lid, stirring occasionally.
  7. Add salt to taste to our broth, black ground pepper, one tablespoon of dried mint and finely chopped garlic. Mix everything and continue cooking for 40 minutes: until the beans are ready.

So we got a wonderful Bulgarian red bean-chorb bean soup. Its aroma is simply delightful: from one smell “saliva flows in a stream”, not to mention the rich taste.
