So pleasantly spiced/seasoned. This is incredibly healthy and easy to make. It makes a wonderful lunch. I made no changes to the recipe, but I may puree a portion of this soup next time I make it to thicken it a bit. Thanx for sharing!

Excellent, low fat, low salt bean soup recipe. I used dried beans (1lb) soaked for 8 hrs in cold water then rinsed and cooked them in the simmering soup, and I used chipotle chili powder for more kick.
