We love soup and this recipe fit the bill for a great tasting soup on a cold winter day. I used the bean and lentil soup mix but because of the beans did have to cook the soup longer. Healthy and great taste, can't get better than that. Recipe is in my keepers file Made for AUS/NZ swap#25

What a tasty soup. It smelled wonderful while simmering and tasted even better. I made it exactly as written, for a lovely treat. A very hearty and savory soup, just perfect for the rainy weather we have been experiencing. Thanks so much for sharing Jewelies, we enjoyed it very much.
