SOUP SEMINAR, PART XLIX—RUSTIC RED BEAN & BROCCOLI SOUP

887th BLOGPOST AT THE AICP-END!

SWATTERS WELCOME!

Bakersfield, CA, 04-26-2013 F: Recently, the Kern County Sheriff’s Department came to our Robert’s Lane facility and came in force.  It seems that someone had called them alerting him or her that Stinkbug was teaching young kids how to handle firearms.  It took place around one a.m. on a Sunday morning, approximately seven KCSD cars surrounded the building and only Smokehouse was here minding the shop.  The poor man almost had a heart attack because when he looked out the porthole in the backdoor, he was stunned to see a bunch of cops standing behind shields holding shotguns and wearing helmets.  The moment he opened the door, they pulled him out of the building, threw him onto the ground, were screaming and yelling at him, while he begged for his life.  The fact that Smokehouse is a Black man did not help him, as our police are somewhat “well-known” if you will for their so-called lack of tolerance with minorities.  By the time they finished searching the facility and took out some of our electronic devices, our lawyers were racing to the compound to straighten things out, no matter the problem.  Were they looking for drugs or some such other illicit substance, something Oildale, California, is famous for—its crack—or were they there for some other unbeknownst reason?  It turns out to be what I mentioned that some smuck uncovered some pictures of Stinkbug holding a Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) with some of his kids online and our building was “swatted.”

Chef Stinkbug

It sounds like so heavy-handed police state stuff but let us face it: we are living in a growing police state as I write this post.  The problem is, some bozo somewhere sees something he or she doesn’t like online and then calls the cops telling them a horrible crime just took place at such and such an address.  Then the cops pile into their paddy wagons and go screeching off into the darkened city streets and arrive outside someone’s backdoor.  They then force their way into your home, toss you aside, handcuff you, read you your rights—if you’re lucky—and then take you down to the Kern County Jail where they put you into a cell with a bunch of rump rangers.  By the time, the lawyer arrives and clears up the situation, your rear end is sore and you are begging to get out of the slam.  Why do these things happen, what is wrong with the world that punks who might disagree with a statement or a photo will go to great lengths to someone put into a dangerous situation that might prove fatal?  There is no telling but it seems to be a favorite tool of the Left.  Bring it on, that is the new policy because when the cops searched the facility, they did not find the BAR, Stinkbug had it somewhere else and took the Fifth when they pressed him down at the interrogation room.  Yes, he arrived to help his longtime friend, Smokehouse, out of his predicament that is what we do for one another here at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day.

Our new policy is we welcome Swatters to become a part of what we have going on here as without them, life is truly boring and depressing.  We now have armed security guards roaming the grounds during the nighttime hours, which means next time, what happened this previous time would never happen again.  We are going to prepare ourselves for the onslaught of cops, it will be like a second go-round at Waco, Texas—you know when the Feds took down David Koresh?  That did not end well for a majority of the participants!

Cult Leader David Koresh

Something else I must comment on is the defeat for the President on the Gun Control Bill he so strongly coveted.  People are becoming tired of his high-handed ways and I do believe that his second term in office is not going to go the way of his first.  I think the man—given a Mulligan by the voters in last year’s election—is going to lose the favored status he had with them for so long because truth be told; the man and his administration are a disaster.  Who does not wince at hearing his words about going after the perpetrators of the Boston Marathon attacks?  They were the exact same words and statements he made when terrorists killed our ambassador and four others in Benghazi, Libya, last year, something he still has not solved nor brought the perps to justice to this day.   He said he would not sleep until the persons responsible were brought to justice so I guess the man is suffering deeply due to the lack of sleep, right.  No, hear me, this second term is going to be a disaster, a disaster of major proportions, of that, there is no doubt because it is already happening and the gun control measure was the first sign of it. 

American Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens

Today, we are going to make another soup—obviously!—as that is what we have been doing for the past five days now, the soup for today is a good one, Rustic Red Bean Soup with Broccoli.  I love making soups as they are sort of the signature pieces for many chefs, something many of our younger brethren seem to overlook as they buy theirs either frozen or in five-gallon buckets and then call it “HOMEMADE!”  I am in tears when I think of these bumbling boobs as it’s tragic, simply tragic to find so many of the modern-day chefs taking disgusting shortcuts and then calling it “theirs.”  That, is the epitome of disgusting, I cannot think of the proper pejorative to call these boneheads and still maintain our family rating!  Anyhow, here we go:

(#1760) RUSTIC RED BEAN SOUP

 


The art of soup making is as old as is humanity and this one is one of the basics, what one might call a “peasant soup.”  However, peasants know how to make delicious food and this one is just that, delicious and much more.  It is one of the best bean soups that I have in my repertoire and one I know you will enjoy as much as my customers and I do.  Red beans are wonderful with which to work, they hold their bodies together admirably and look and taste great.  I love them because one does not seem them as often as they do other legumes and that makes them number one in my book! Add the broccoli to it and you have a magnificent soup!

Servings:  8-12 servings

2.5
Quarts

Tablespoon
Better-than-Bouillon chicken base
 
1
Cup
Red beans
 
1

Finely-diced carrots
 
1
Cup
Finely-diced celery
 
1
Cup
Finely-diced yellow onions

Cup
Catsup
 
Tomato paste
 
.25
Cup
Freshly minced parsley flakes
Rinsed and dried
1
Quart
Broccoli florets, blanched in salted water
 

 


Method:

1.     Place a saucepot with the chicken stock and the base atop a medium-high flame and when near boiling, add the beans.  Bring to a boil and once there, keep it there for 1-2 minutes; then, drop the flame to medium-low and allow the beans to cook until tender.  However, do NOT cook them to mush, try them at different times but once they are somewhat soft yet still firm, keep a close eye on them: get them to al dente state then drain (reserving the liquid) and plunge the beans into ice water to prevent further cooking.

2.     Return the stock to the stove making sure you have about THREE quarts so add additional water if need be. Add the vegetables, seasonings, and the wieners and cook them until somewhat tender.

3.     Drain the beans and have them ready.  Meanwhile, stir in the catsup and some tomato paste taking care to thicken the soup slightly but not as much as a roux-based soup.  Allow this mixture to simmer for a while over low flame, then check and readjust the flavorings and seasonings to preference. 

4.     Return the beans to the soup, heat them, and then prepare to serve.  Either serve the soup in a large tureen or serve it in individual cups or bowls placed atop doily-lined underliners.  Add the broccoli to the soup prior to serving or use it as a garnish, too.  Garnish each cup with a dash or two of parsley flakes and accompany with fresh hot bread, butter, and hot sauce if you wish. 

5.     Cool leftovers to below 45°F as quickly as possible so pour them into a shallow pan placed atop a cooling rack.  As soon as the soup is cool enough to refrigerate, do so by placing it into the refrigerator with adequate airflow on all sides.  Then, when very cold, pour it into a sanitized airtight container equipped with a tight-fitting lid, label, date, and refrigerate.  Keep cold unless in use and always reheat to 165°F or higher prior to serving and NEVER return leftovers to the parent batch as this raises the possibility of souring the soup.  Shelf life is 3-4 days at most so use well within that time.  Note: you can also add diced ham to the soup, too, if you wish to increase both the flavor and the protein content.

This simple soup can be made ahead of time and put together at the last moment for a quick meal. Keep it handy in your recipe box.

BEAT THE BOOTS III, DISK I

          Friends, do not forget that we have another election coming up in nineteen months so now is the time to begin the search for qualified candidates.  If we continue putting flawed or ignorant candidates forward, we are going to continue losing to the well-polished political Obama Machine, something that seems to be on track for another awesome showing when it goes after the House in next year’s mid-terms.  We need to find qualified candidates to run for office and I for one, am thinking about throwing my hat into the race for one of the House seats.  I think I have a lot to offer the electorate and I do think I can win, in fact, I know I can!  The first thing I need to do is to put an end to “Swatting” as that is going to get someone killed, unless, of course, I can turn it around so the swatter becomes the swatee.  Wouldn’t that be great, if one could do a reverse swatting, you know, boomerang the cops back onto the putz who put them on someone else, all as a funny joke?  Maybe they would be shot, that’d be awesome!  See you tomorrow, Saturday, then Sunday and BOOM! I am out the backdoor unless, of course, the SWAT Team is standing outside it.  That’s a joke, you know, funny, ha-ha!  Yeah, right!                                             

 

BEAT THE BOOTS III, DISK II

Anyhow, let us close with this impassioned plea—please leave some comments and/or become a follower and why not spend some money and purchase an album by Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention and/or buy a cookbook from Amazon.com—we want to make some money here so help us out by buying something!  Allied with them, we are pleased to market their merchandise!  Amazon.com is one of the greatest—if not the ultimate greatest!—online department stores in which, one can find almost everything on the planet.  We love them and they love us and we want all of you to visit them daily, take advantage of their deals on everything from kitchen equipment to cookbooks, CDs, DVDs, and everything else a person could want.  Everything you buy from them puts money into our pockets, which allows us to keep this fine blog up-and-running 24/7/365!  God bless America and God bless Amazon.com!

Thanks, my friends!

This is me back in 1981 at a Chefs de Cuisine dinner in Los Angeles, California, at the Century Plaza Hotel. I was among the chefs who worked the dinner and it was there that I met Stinkbug, my good friend. We later worked together in Washington State in the Puget Sound area, primarily Mukilteo. I began my career in 1972 in Culver City, California but presently make my home in Frazier Park, California.
