    loof's Note:

    This recipe came from the Soup Kettle section of the cookbook "365 Easy One-Dish Meals". It is different and yummy! I usually use canneloni beans instead of the limas.

      This hit the spot on the first cooler, windy eveing at the end of summer. We don't care for yams so I substituted regular potatoes as well as parsnips and added a bit extra of all veggies. I reduced the amount of chicken by half and used only chicken broth (no water). I used lima beans. All in all the soup is great with lots of flavour and lots of goodies for your health. I will be making this again for sure. It is great for using left over chicken, turkey or veggies.Thanks for sharing!
