White Bean Pesto Soup - Vegan

Cold weather can make your healthy eating resolutions difficult to keep. Kick 2013 off right with this healthy vegan soup. Perfect for a cold weekend, the ample leftovers can give you lunch for days! This soup fit my three criteria: it was filling, comforting and flavorful. It was such a simple vegetarian/vegan meal! Potatoes and beans add bulk, while carrots and rainbow chard add lots of color. The pesto add delicious flavor and a bit of a kick. Serve with some crusty bread.
