Soup Is Good Food

I made an excellent soup last night. I can't take credit for the recipe. I got it from Rachael Ray. But since it was online, I can share it with you. It's a beans-and-greens soup call Deep Winter Minestra, and it's delish! I veganize it by leaving out the bacon. It doesn't miss it a bit. Last night I added some Tofurkey sausage for a change of pace, but I probably won't bother with that again. Who needs faux meat when you have all those lovely mushrooms, beans, greens, and pasta? Mmmm... perfect for this time of year, and really easy to make. I always make way too much. Time to get Soup Night going again on a regular basis. Feeding people is one of my favorite things. Make a pot, and share it with friends! Enjoy!

Any kind of soup, chili, or any concoction from a crock pot is high on my list!

Yum! Yum! Will be making this for sure. Soups are so "warming, friendly and sustaining" in the cooler, winter months.

I remember when I was a very young Air Force bride, couldn't cook, and no money. My husband taught me how to make potato and onion soup. It cost next to nothing and was yummy - especially for a Southern girl toughing it out in winter in Syracuse, NY! Polly Anna

Yes, m.e. I agree with you wholheartedly. I've got TWO pots going right now. And I am not a fan of fake meat, either. Vegetables are so wonderful, and I am a little suspicious of what is in those compressed morsels, i.e. mystery veggies :-). Norine

Love homemade soup! Anything with kale is a friend of mine. I have one recipe that is similar called Tunisian Vegetable.
