      My husband claims to not like carrots or green peppers very much, despite this he said this was the best soup he has ever tasted! I had to use tinned navy beans as I couldn't lay my hands on any dried ones here (Barbados) I also used dried basil and cayenne pepper sprinkles - and substituted olive oil instead of butter, anyway it was delish, nice and spicy, I would maybe cut down on the salt a little - but that may have been because of the tinned beans, I know I will be making this one a lot!!
