魔豆湯得花長時間慢墩每年冬天就利用燒木柴的老火爐慢火燉上好幾天以備在外工作進屋後有碗熱騰騰又營養飽肚的湯可喝亦可用大同電鍋或燉鍋煮它味道一樣鮮美

這湯的所有豆子都是自家種的
什麼豆子都行重點在必須浸泡一夜至少八小時以上第二天倒掉泡豆子的水用清水把豆子洗幾遍再放到電鍋或燉鍋裡煮到爛熟水量約為豆子的兩倍

豆子煮軟後加入黑橄欖蕃茄汁或新鮮番茄繼續燉爛 (若用新鮮番茄則在滾水把蕃茄煮爛後,挑出皮, 加入許多大蒜和多種香草, 例如羅勒草調味)

加入米(白米糙米小米都行) 可事先用電鍋把飯煮熟再加入豆湯裡比較快

加點鹽和香草 (若無新鮮或乾的西洋香草
中國類香草亦可) 大蒜和辣椒這些調味料可依個人喜好增減

吃素的以下步驟可省:

另一大碗醃絞肉: 大蒜辣椒香草和鹽醃牛/豬/羊肉選其一若用雞肉可用去骨雞絲肉或把雞骨頭從湯裡挑出來
熱油鍋把絞肉炒熟再加到豆湯裡大火煮滾即可

加入擦絲的起司洋蔥絲或酪梨趁熱吃亦可搭配製的蔓越莓全麥麵包
