Bean Soup

It was a cold, blustery day here in the heartland, and I wanted nothing more than something tasty and filling for supper. Determined to create as many cost-effective and healthful dishes as possible, I decided to raid my pantry and freezer for items I preserved last summer. In the dead of winter, a dish prepared with garden produce is good for the soul.

After tossing around a few ideas, I decided on one of my favorites — Cold-Weather Bean Soup. It’s easy to make and such a comforting one-pot meal. Plus, it’s nutritious thanks to frozen garden peppers, home-canned tomatoes, and freshly dug carrots, onions, and garlic. Keep the cold at bay, and read on to find out how to make this wholesome, savory bean soup.
