For someone looking for satisfying, low-(no) cholesterol, low-sodium recipes, this is a keeper! I use no-salt-added tomatoes and everything else as specified. The flavors are very satisfying! (Yes, the first time I made it from the printed version of recipe; saw there would be no liquid if I drained the cooked beans, so checked on-line for corrected version. I usually use boxed broth as the basis for soup, but water was fine with all the flavorings.)
This recipe has a very homey, comforting flavor. Wonderful for a cold winter's day.
