I found this recipe while looking for something I could use beans. Serve with a loaf of warm crusty bread.

This is a light, warming soup recipe. It would be excellent as either a light dinner or a starter soup as well. We felt like it was lacking something and wasn't as filling as a dinner soup should be. I think diced ham or bacon would really send this over the top! It's a great base to start with and the possibilites are endless. Thanks for a good soup recipe to fight off the cold Vermont winters! Made for ZWT5. :D
