If you like veggies and beans you will love this recipe! I created this recipe myself based on others I saw on the site. Taking what I like from each and combining it. This soup is really filling and very flavorful with minimal effort. Its more veggies and beans than soup, so the soup isn't as liquid as most. I don't usually measure spices so these are just estimates.

I found this soup (stew) to be a bit bland. It was improved after a few tablespoons of crushed red pepper.

This is an exceptional soup. I did make some minor changes though. I did not use any butter or flour and used an entire 920ml carton of veggie broth. So my kids would eat it, I pureed a 19 oz. can of stewed tomatoes and used whole grain pasta. My entire family loved this soup and it was so easy to make. Thanks for the recipe.
