I really enjoy making soups, it is so fun for me to take ingredients I have, that usually need to be used and create a nice warm soup or stew. I also really enjoy eating soups as my meals, I think they are healthy and a tasty way to get some vital nutrients.

For convenience I used canned tomatoes and beans but this soup would also be great with fresh tomatoes and for the beans you could definitely use dry beans that have been pre-soaked. This soup is wonderfully delicious and for a complete meal you could pair a bowl of this soup with, crusty bread, your favorite sandwich or a salad.
