The home economists in our Test Kitchen simmered up this fresh-tasting meatless soup. Hearty with two kinds of beans, it makes a satisfying entree. Round out the meal with Walnut Zucchini Muffins or warm dinner rolls.

"I made this soup as directed but I added 4oz can of chopped green chilies, and a 4oz can of chopped jalapenos, and added more cans of the beans. This soup came out really good. This recipe is a keeper. I also made some yeast rolls. I will make this recipe again."

"This recipe had mixed reviews at my house. I thought it was just okay, somewhat better with Parmesan sprinkled on top. However, my niece who is a vegan loved it and quickly had 2 large bowls (without the Parmesan of course)."

"Delicious and filling soup. I used solely northern white beans and it came out well. Served it to my family who also loved it. This will become a staple for us as it's rich with vitamins and minerals and extremely nutritious. Can't wait to make it again."

"This soup is absolutely amazing! I like to try to eat healthy but still have my food taste well. It quickly made it onto our regular dinner menu. Occasionally, I like to throw in a couple of handfuls of diced potatoes. I also like to up the healthy factor by using Organic broth and veggies."

"Tasty and healthy soup. Makes a great base for anything. For example I have thrown in a cup of cauliflower in the last 15 minutes of cooking. I also like to add an additional can of beans to make the soup heartier."

"I didn't include the tomatoes because I'm tired of having tomatoes in soup... instead, I added 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt to make up for some of the flavor. It was very simple and clean and wholesome... yum."
