For lunch I'm making 6 bean soup and bread. I have 6 beans on hand, use more or less, what ever you have in your pantry. This is a very flexible recipe. Or use a mix from Bob's Red Mill.
Soak 1/2 cup each of dried kidney, pinto, and black beans.
Pour 1/4 cup each of split pea, black eyed peas, and lentils into a bowl and set aside.

Pressure cook or just cook the large beans until starting to soften, about 30 minutes in a pressure cooker. Pour off the water, add soup stock (I had chicken from last weekend), add in the dried smaller beans and gently simmer.
Mince onion, garlic, bell pepper, carrots and saute in butter or oil. Add to simmering beans. Add some chopped meat - chicken, pork, sausage etc.
Dinner - a french-style meal of roasted potatoes, romaine, over easy eggs, and a bit of left over hummus.
