About six months ago, I bought a large container (2.8 kg) of a bean mix. I've made soup from the mix once and wasn't wild about the end result (although that could have been the recipe, not the mix). I came across this gigantic jar again while pantry cleaning this morning, and started to think about how I could use it up . . . and not make soup.

Have you ever used a soup mix for something other than soup? My mix has green whole peas, green whole lentils, red split lentils, pinto beans, small white beans, small red beans, light red kidney beans, black beans and black eye beans (think they mean black-eyed peas).

I thought about cooking the beans and making patties, but that's as far as my inspiration is taking me today. Any suggestions?

Bean soup mixes are great for making mosaics! All the pretty colors!

On the food front, have you made cholent yet? Still a soup, but a better one. Also, bean salads? Just cook, maybe add some small diced veggies, dress very very lightly with oil and vinegar or leave plain.

Maybe make beans and rice! Does it already have seasoning?

Yeah, beans and rice! Then wrap the whole thing up in a tortilla with some hot sauce and call it a burrito.

Veggie burgers?

ETA: Duh! You already said that... hmmm... I'd put all that stuff in chili, too.

I always make stews with it. The mixes I use also contain barley. I add smoked tofu.

Thanks for the suggestions -- I do need to spice this up (no seasoning in the mix). And throw some different grains in the dish. You've inspired me to start experimenting!
