Cuban Bean Soup

While in Tampa for work, I enjoyed a nice evening at Columbia Cafe. I especially enjoyed their Cuban Bean Soup. This is my recreation of that soup. This is a modification of Spanish Bean Soup, from tasteofcuba.com.

I often use a frozen package of chopped onions, peppers, and celery rather than the fresh ingredients.

Original recipe: http://www.tasteofcuba.com/spanishbeansoup.html

  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 6-7 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 cans of garbanzo beans (drained and rinsed)
