Hearty Low Sodium Minestrone Soup
Making your own soup isn't hard and it can save you a lot of sodium compared to canned commercial soups, which even in their "low sodium" varieties usually have a lot more than you might want.
White and black pepper flavor up this low-sodium soup. It is hearty and thick - almost like a stew. (You can decrease the white pepper for milder flavor. You can also increase the amount of chicken broth for a thinner, less hearty soup.)
This is not classic minestrone, which would have white and/or kidney beans rather than just garbanzo beans, but garbanzos are what we had on hand ... which is fine!
Serve with garlic bread or crackers.Submitted by: NEWMOMOVER40
