Wash the beans. Soak them for at least 4 hours, or up to a day in plenty of water to cover by several inches. Drain the beans from the soaking liquid and put them in a large, heavy pot. Add the 8 cups of water or broth, bay leaves, celery, carrots, onions and garlic. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 1 hour. Add the lime juice, coriander, salt, oregano, Tabasco, cayenne, cumin and parsley, and simmer for 45 minutes longer, or until the beans are very soft. At this stage, half of the soup can be pureed, if desired. Garnish with a spoonful of non fat yogurt and sliced green scallions, if desired.
