This hearty bean and vegetable soup is both colorful and delicious. The original recipe was found at Posted for ZWT #6--2010. Preparation time does NOT include overnight soaking of the beans.

This was good. DH liked it. I did use some homemade chicken broth but mostly water & sea salt. Made for Family Picks, ZWT6 Greece/Cyprus region, for my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood.
