I really enjoy my soups and this is a favorite veg soup. Just serve with a nice french stick of bread. Delicious. I got the recipe from "The flavours of Canada by Anita Stewart

This was so yummy! Makes a lot of soup, so I think we will be having it again tomorrow which is fine by me. I used 1 Tbsp canola oil in place of the butter and vegetarian chicken stock (McKays chicken seasoning mixed with water) to cut out a lot of saturated fat and remove the cholesterol. I also only used the equivelent of 1 can of each of the beans, because I wanted it to be more soupy. This turned out so delicious and very healthy! Thanks Marlitt!
