Winter. Snow. Cold. Want soup. Want...It...NOW!! Yeah, that's how I get when I want something to chase away the chill of the day. So, to satisfy that food craving, I tried this veggie/bean soup recipe from Whole Foods. I didn't plan ahead, so I had to use a quick soak method of softening the beans, instead of just soaking the beans overnight like the recipe called for. It's not a super quick recipe when you have to cook the beans instead of just using canned ones, but, it was worth the wait. Besides, it made the house smell good while it was simmering. Tweaked it just a bit for what I had on hand. Hit the spot.
