Best Local Soup Mix 

Southwest Heirloom Bean Soup

Staff Pick

It's a long, long way from Campbell's chicken noodle. This mixture of five heirloom beans--including Anasazi, red scarlet runner, gold eye and rio zape beans--plus giant limas, red lentils, split peas, barley, Mexican oregano and a good-sized chile, cooks up with a few vegetables into a big slew of fragrant, deeply satisfying soup. It'll feed six easily, or keep two people going for days. And you'll be happy to keep reheating: The different beans give it beauty and interest, while the barley adds heft to the richly seasoned broth. It's a bargain at $6 a pound at Native Seeds/SEARCH's always-fascinating shop.
