       Title: Summer White Bean Soup
  Categories: Vegetarian, Soups
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       1 c  Dried white beans
       8 c  Vegetable stock or water
       1    Bay leaf
     1/2 c  Chopped celery or Swiss
            -chard stems
       1 T  Unrefined vegetable oil
       1 qt Washed and chopped Swiss
            -chard leaves
       1 T  Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
       3 T  Rice vinegar
  
   Cover the beans with water and soak for 6-8 hours, or overnight. (In
   hot weather, put the soaking beans in the refrigerator to keep them
   from fermenting.) Before cooking, drain and combine the beans with
   vegetable stock, or fresh water, and a bay leaf. Bring to a boil and
   simmer for 1 1/2 hours or until tender.
   
   In a skillet, saute celery in oil and add to beans with other
   ingredients. Cook until chard is tender but still bright green, about
   5-10 minutes. Remove bay leaf.
