Best of Bridge Bean Soup

READY IN: 3hrs 45mins
Recipe by lazyme

This is from the Aces cookbook in the Best of Bridge series. My DH doesn't like beans and loves this soup. It takes a little time to prep, but it is worth it. It gets even better the next day.

Thank you, lazyme, for posting this great recipe! My dh and I really enjoyed this . . . of course my picky kids won't touch anything with veggies AND beans, but more for us! I just had another bowl for lunch and it is definitely better on day two! I used beans that were prepared from dried, instead of canned without any problems.
