Reviews for Butter Bean Veggie Soup
"I've been making this for years, and it's always so comforting, hearty and delicious. It's a great way to clean out the crisper drawer too!"
"I added 2 cloves garlic with other veggies and a couple handfuls of chopped raw Kale in the simmering process at the end. I had made this by the recipe the first time and thought it needed more spices. Now I add a tablespoon of Emeril's essence and a tablespoon of soul seasoning and its delish."
"This was better than expected! I used a 1 pound bag of frozen butter beans (thawed in the refrigerator) and a can of diced tomatoes instead of stewed tomatoes. Quite tasty!~ Theresa"
