    rsarahl's Note:

    This hearty bean soup almost makes itself. Vary the bouillon to suite your taste using vegetable, chicken or beef. I've tried different bean combinations as well and this is one of many that works well. Great vegetarian soup when using vegetable broth! Add garlic bread and a salad and you've got a complete meal!

      Excellent stick to your ribs meal in one pot. Usually I rate a recipe a 4 star if I make chenges to the recipes but in this case the changes were all due to personal taste. The recipe looks great the way it is. The instructions are clear step by step. Because I love meat I added 1 1/2 lbs of double smoked farmers sausage, upped the garlic to 4 cloves and used fresh green beans (The garden produced so many this year). Used chicken soup granuals. Put it on at 6 AM on low, checked it at 11AM added a bit more water and adjusted seasoning at 5 PM turned to "Keep Warm" again added just a touch more water. Really delicious meal accompanied by a salad Thankyou rsarahl Keep these great recipes coming!
