Submitted by: SHEENUH

Introduction

A thick, hearty tomato based vegetable soup with a huge variety of beany-goodness! PERFECT for making in bulk and freezing for later use. It's much cheaper and tastier than buying canned soup!

Directions

****NOTE***** When you buy the 15 bean soup mix.... MAKE SURE ITS NOT FLAVORED WITH SOME KIND OF ANIMAL STOCK! I found several that were flavored with chicken, etc. Just thought I'd note that so to be aware of vegetarian/vegan needs!******

Soak beans with a small amount of onion and minced garlic for several hours. Sautee veggies about 5 minutes. Combine Vegetable broth and everything else and dilute with water to desired thickness (maybe 1-2 cups). Simmer for several hours until beans and veggies are soft. Add seasoning to taste and eat up!
