Tasted great with the fresh baked bread my son's girlfriend made topped with blackberry jam.

Smokey Bean Soup
I cooked some pinto beans in my crockpot with a little dried garlic and onion, and added about a two inch piece of kombu. When the beans were tender I added a couple teaspoons of salt and removed the kombu. The next day the beans and the liquid all went on the stove-top with about 2-4 cups of water (depending on how thick you want your soup) mixed with veggie-broth powder. Added thyme, fresh ground pepper, salt to taste, and about 3 dashes of liquid smoke. Simmered for about an hour or so, added some fresh chopped kale and when wilted was ready to serve.
