This is full-flavored, eye-appealing, nutrition in a bowl at its best! You can style it as either a 7-Bean Soup or a multi-bean culinary extravaganza… YOUR choice! And, it suits an autumn day perfectly!
The red, tan and brown colors of this soup match the fall leaves that will soon be dressing themselves out in their Autumnal-Best and falling into my yard… Much to the chagrin of my husband who well get to rake what we don’t mulch!
It’s an extra-special treat for yourself and your family, gluten-free or not, on a chilly fall day!
We rediscovered chard this summer. We had eaten it before, once every year or two, but I didn’t remember it tasted as good as it has this summer. We’re making up for lost time. I’ve served it every couple of weeks lately.
Navy beans are one of our favorites here…well, especially Al’s favorites. He likes them with just about anything…in a salad, as part of a main dish or as a side in a main meal. He likes them in many combinations, but most of all, he likes them in soup.
Have you ever been hungry for a bowl of hearty tomato soup? I wasn’t sure what “hearty tomato soup” meant the other day, but that was the kind of tomato soup I wanted. We were having guests for dinner but they would be arriving late, after another event, and I was preparing steaks to broil and veggies and rice on the side. A crockpot meal would have been ideal for that uncertain dinner hour, but since steaks don’t broil in a crockpot, I opted for soup instead. Tomato soup with some extras that might tide us over till a late supper, or be a good first course. Here is what we had. No leftovers.
