A Good Soup for the Sick


1 pound cranberry beans (like Borlotti)
8 cups of water
15 medium cloves of garlic, peeled and trimmed

2 big shallots (I might have used a white onion but didn't have one), sliced on the axis into thin crescents

2-3 dried smoked chiles (I used smoked serranos) but I suspect dried chipotles or even one or two chipotles from the can (in adobo sauce) would work nicely

2 teaspoons+ fine sea salt for seasoning

a drizzle of flavorful extra-virgin olive oil

a small handful of cilantro, chopped

a couple (optional) handfuls of a salty hard cheese, Parmesan, grated (I think my mystery cheese was actually Three Sisters Serena)


Turn To This Miraculously Delicious Soup When You Are Feeling Sick - Beans, Water, Garlic, Shallots, Chiles. Total Active Prep Time Was Under Five Minutes, The Rest Is Just Waiting And Anticipating.
