Five-Bean Soup

This Five Bean Soup is a staple at our house. It is so easy to throw together, and full of delicious flavor. If you are looking for a simple and delicious dinner recipe, this is one we highly recommend.

Growing up, I was never a huge soup fan. There were only a few certain soups I liked. My mom usually only made soup in the winter, and we couldn’t go play in the snow until we had finished all our soup.

Looking back, that’s why I think I hated soup, because now I love it, and can’t get enough of it. This Five Bean Soup, has a special place in my heart. It is so tasty, and so easy to throw together.

Five-Bean Soup from Six Sisters' StuffFive-Bean Soup is such an easy soup recipe, and you probably already have most the ingredients. This soup is my go to recipe when I am busy or don’t have time to go to the store.

I usually keep all the beans in my pantry in case I need a quick recipe. I love to dip bread sticks in this soup. It’s delicious, and full of fiber and protein.

add a little more flavor:

The best way to add a little flavor to soup, is seasonings. We love adding in a little extra taco seasoning, cumin, jalapeño salt, garlic salt, etc. If you have a favorite go to seasoning, I am sure it would taste delicious in this.

My husband like a little kick in his, and sometimes, we cook with jalapeños in the soup. You could also use a beef bullion cube as well.

would this soup freeze well?

This soup would freeze great in an airtight storage container. We recommend freezing it for up to one month.

For the best results, use it within the month.

To thaw, place it in the fridge 24 hours before you plan to serve it, then microwave, or bring to a boil over the stove, before re-serving.

  1. This soup is DELICIOUS! I made it with vegetable broth instead of chicken broth (makes it kosher for the Daniel Fast!) and love this recipe. Thank you for sharing! I have passed it on to several friends and will definitely make it again.
      • Could anything go wrong with this if I left it on low in the slow cooker all day? Like for 8-9 hours? This seems like a great recipe, but we're gone all day and we don't have an auto set on our crockpot to turn on at a certain time. We'd have to turn it on in the morning...
        • It may be a little long for it to cook at that temperature. Does your slow cooker have a warm setting. Usually a warm setting on a slow cooker is around 145 degrees F. That might be a better setting for 9 hours. You will want to saute the onions and pepper first.
  2. This was FANTASTIC!!! I had soaked and precooked beans early in the week to make burritos but we were needing a soup night so I found this recipe. I have a vegan 17 yr old, vegetarian husband, and my 14 yr old and I are "flexitarian." Everyone LOVED this! I used veggie broth instead of chicken broth and my bean mix was a little different (black, pinto, adzuki) but I used the basic recipe and the exact spice measurements (so you can be flexible on the beans.) Some of us added Sriracha for heat. Perfect healthy soup with a side of salad! Thank you!

    This is a very flavorful and hearty soup. I made this to have for lunch for the next few days. You would never know that it's healthy and only 0 Weight Watchers Freestyle Points, not including any toppings. I did not use any toppings on this soup, as I didn't feel it needed it. It's so delicious!
  4. This soup is really, really good! I usually buy the dried bean 6 bean soup mix, but this was so much easier! I added a can of garbanzo beans to make it a "6" bean soup, and cubed ham. The spices were spot on, and I don't think I will ever go back to the dried bean version!
