White bean with chicken or earthy black bean soup recipes are perfect to have on hand for game-day season. A great way to root for both sides!
My Team Or Yours
Having a few friends over for game day? Doesn’t matter if it’s football, tennis or the Olympics; we all have a favorites we want to win.
Often, I find the same thing happens when choosing good eats for a gathering; not everyone likes to eat the same way, anymore.
I decided there would be enough competition going on, on the television, why have the food become a competition too!
Game Day Good Eats
Sure, there’ll be plenty of dips, chips and veggie sticks. Sure there’ll be plenty of beer and wine. But, I wanted to make sure there would also be something substantial, hearty and healthy to eat too.
A big ole loaf of Black Olive homemade bread was the perfect bread to tie the two together. The bread is made earlier in the week, before the game day gathering.
Homemade bone broth is always tucked away in my freezer, so these two contrasting soups come together quickly and can sit on the stove until ready to serve, or have folks serve themselves.
Black Bean Soup
Black Bean Soup for my Yang soup is loaded with flavor. The earthy flavor of Black Rice and Black Beans with hot chilies and smoked salt, make this a perfect hot dish for a crisp night!
While you can use dried chili flakes in this soup for a little heat, freshly chopped chilies, which I often have an abundance of in my freezer from my summer gardens, give the soup not only heat, but a that fresh almost tangy flavor that you can’t get from dried flakes.
White Bean Soup
With some leftover chicken or a store bought rotisserie chicken, this White Bean and Chicken Soup comes together fast.
White beans have a delicate flavor and soft texture and lend themselves to poultry or simply a heap of vegetables in a luscious soup broth.
What You Will Need
Both soup recipes are created to serve between two and four people, so simply double up the recipes as your gathering calls for!
