This is a quick South Beach Diet friendly soup. It is brothy, but the beans are very filling. I adapted a recipe from the cookbook to suit the ingredients that I had on hand.

I love this soup - make it all the time since I discovered it. I usually double the recipe and it holds fine for a few days of leftovers. Barely lift a finger to make it - I call it lazy woman's soup.
