I turned to this hearty recipe after my husband had open-heart surgery. Filled with beans, veggies and chicken, it's chock full of fiber and lean protein to help fill us up. It makes a big batch so it's great to freeze for leftovers. —Elizabeth Wagner, Clio, Michigan
This wonderful-for-winter soup comes from Tracy Lohr of Urbandale, Iowa. Using a blender, this soup becomes a smooth, nutritious heart-warmer just right for those cool nights. If the soup is too thick, add a little more vegetable broth to thin it out.
This quick and filling soup from Carolyn Burbidge of makes a bunch, but it won’t last long! The reader from Bountiful, Utah says, “The leftovers are even better the next day. I love it because we get two hearty meals out of one short cooking session.”
