Mmmmm, mmmm! So very easy to make and so yummy! Perfect soup for this cloudy, chilly day. I cut the recipe in half easily and used canned crushed tomato instead of diced. Also added quite a bit more red pepper for a really good kick. Great recipe for anyone that likes tomato soup and it's got a little more staying power with the limas... gives you protein, fiber, and does make this soup much more hearty. Didn't even need the cheese!

Nice soup using ingredients I usually have on hand. I'd like to try this using beef broth as I tend to prefer tomatoey soups with a beefy base. But this was a nice change and uses my favorite lima beans. Filling and healthy. Thanks for sharing it.
