Hotdog Soup

Sounds disgusting, huh?  I threw it together tonight and B & Jilly loved it, so I thought I'd share.  this would be much healthier with dried, soaked beans...but I was in a pinch for time.

1 can of black beans drained and rinsed
1 nitrate free buffalo hotdog sliced
1 carrot peeled and chopped
1 stalk of celery chopped
1 1/2 cups of sea salted water or beef broth if tolerated
ground fennel to taste
cumin to taste

Add all ingredients and bring to a boil.  Then simmer until vegetables are soft.

It's not gourmet, but when B and Jilly both like something, it's worth sharing. :)

Edited to replace sage with fennel and to say this really is a kid soup.  I didn't like it, but B & J loved it.  So, cook at your own risk!


  1. Oh man, my boys would love that! I'll keep it in mind! I've started keeping some cooked black beans in the freezer. They always help out when I'm in a pinch!

  2. Hmmm, hot dog soup. OK, only because you said they like it, I will try it for our boys. I will let you know how it goes.

  3. To be honest, I didn't care for it much. But I don't like hotdogs, either. So, it may just be a weird kid food...or maybe my kids have strange taste buds?!? Either way, I can't believe they both liked it :)

  4. Glad to see you blogging again :)
    I took a break from FB for a year and it was so nice. And with Ryan's Infantile Scoliosis sometimes I have to turn it all away and just let him be a little boy.
    BTW-the hotdog soup might be a winner for my boys. I am going to give it a try.
