Thank you. It's loaded in protein, fiber and nutrients. It's one of the best winter vegetarian soups I've created and it's going in my cook book. Tasty and Hearty. Note: If you're not accustomed to eating beans, we know they tend to be a little uh, "gassy"... I suggest taking enzymes along with a meal like this or Beano.
This looks great!

My apologies for any grammar errors. I have "speedy fingers". Here we go again: This hearty soup/stew is everything but bland. Did you take a look at all of the ingredient? Onions, garlic, paprika and chili Serrano peppers alone give it a serious kick. Additional spices and Liquid Aminos are slow cooked flavors that the vegetables and beans are soaking up for many hours. Try it and let me know! I loved every bite and couldn't get enough.

this recipe sounds like a great base for a more flavoursome soup; and adding spices and herbs to your food makes it more satisfying for your taste buds so you won't feel like eating as much and also chili in particular boosts your metabolism so win-win

I'd like to say I want to try it, but it looks bland.
