My daughter LOVES this soup. I made it once and she said "Mommy, I want to eat this soup everyday!! It's so yummy!!" If I haven't made it in awhile, she will even ask for it. As a vegetarian myself, I also greatly appreciate a hearty, but at the same time light soup that is a great source of protein and filling. This has become a staple in our meal plans. Great soup!
This recipe tastes like spring! Easy to make, filling, and my carnivore husband doesn't miss the meat. I had the pesto straight to the soup and don't wait to spoon it in. Works better.
I just tried this recipe tonight for the first time. I love soup and I make it from scratch all the time. I followed the recipe exactly, except I added a little pat of butter at the very end for an extra flavor boost. This is a great, healthy recipe for dinner or lunch. The beans make it very hearty. This is a very filling soup, not to be dismissed for the lack of meat. I made garlic bread to accompany the meal. Would love to serve this as an appetizer sometime, but it definitely holds it own as the main course. Between all the vegetables you have to chop, make sure you allow at least an hour and a half to make this, unless you have someone that can help you chop. This is going into the recipe box!
