Gluten Free Portuguese Bean Soup

Gluten Free Portuguese Bean Soup Recipe

I love cozy, one pot soups for dinner in the winter. Yes, even here in Florida we have winter – such as it is. We may not have sub-zero temperatures and blizzards but we do have cool days with dark skies. And it is on such days that if feels so comforting to have a big, hearty pot of soup simmering away.

This recipe is my version of Portuguese Bean Soup. I feel perfectly justified in coming up with my own take on this soup as apparently ever self-respecting Portuguese housewife and cook has their own version.

Happy 2013! I hope your year is off to a good start. Personally I have a very good feeling about this coming year and I look forward to seeing how it all unfolds.

The beginning of a year is typically the time for resolutions. Mine have been pretty much the same year after year so I have decided I am not really a resolution person. Don’t get me wrong, I am all about setting goals and working towards the achievement of those goals. But resolutions? Not so much.

I am not a superstitious person. I believe that we are the architects of our own destiny, that it is we who shape our futures, and that we create our own good (or bad) fortune by the way we live our lives. (Just ignore that sound of someone knocking on wood!)

But I also like to hedge my bets. In many cultures around the world it is believed that eating certain foods at the New Year will increase good fortune

I hope you all had a lovely holiday! We have had a packed schedule here; holiday cocktail parties, big family dinners, brunches and all sort of lovely, organized chaos. It started with Thanksgiving and a month later we are still in party mode!

After all this reveling I am thinking that New Year’s Eve should be quiet; just a wonderful late night dinner for the hubby and me. But just because it will be only the two of us does not mean it shouldn’t be special.
