    Lorrie in Montreal's Note:

    This is a hearty winter soup to take the chill from your bones. If you prefer to use canned beans, I suggest 2 cans of beans.

      So much flavor and health in a bowl! I love this soup. My only change was to use dry garlic toast to save the fat from the butter and cheese, It's very hearty and ideal for a cold rainy and gray day. I used canned beans because I decided in late afternoon that this was on tonights menu. The tomato really brightens up the taste. Thanks Lori fro a recipe that I will use again.
