The Joke Is On Me

The funny part about the Portuguese Bean Soup was that there were absolutely no beans in it. Tasty broth, celery and onions, cabbage, crumbled sausage, yes. Beans, no. I researched it on the internet and it's supposed to have beans in it.

Did they just not stir the pot before they scooped out my ladleful?

Or is the joke on the malihini*?

Bean soup with no beans....a new trend or server error? Have fun!

They were there. They were either "beans" or "invisible." Or both.

Not a strong enough stir of the pot before serving I'd say! How disappointing.

Greg, it was delicious even without the beans, but if I try to replicate it at home, I will add beans. :-)

Cookiecrumb, I'm voting for invisible beans. Or maybe the menehunes stole them?

Ms Mouse, I guess the servers were in a hurry - and young/inexperienced. They are students, I think. It was good anyway, just not hearty.
