The title says it all. I bought some 10 bean soup from the bulk bin and was going to cook it with some onion and carrots and veggie broth, but what spices should I add? I'm a horrible cook and don't want to ruin the soup when I make it! (I'm making 2 cups of dried bean soup)
TIA!

Depends on what taste you'd like.
You can't really go wrong with garlic, basil, pepper, salt, rosemary. I would also add some tomato product. Either paste or canned tomatoes maybe

I add garlic, pepper and 1 tablespoon cumin. Spicy but not really hot, more of a smoky flavor.

you could also add miso paste for some depth with those herbs and spices.

Couldn't resist adding my all-time favorite bean spices: turmeric, ginger, cumin, and fenugreek. I like to cook the in olive oil then add the whole mixture to whatever beans or lentils I'm cooking.
