I love soup. I love eating soup. I love making soup. I love creating new soup recipes. I prefer a soup with lots of liquid, but my husband prefers a thick, stick-to-your-ribs soup. So usually I scoop out more vegetables into his bowl and more liquid into mine!

As a vegetarian I also make lots of different bean soups. Although I use kidney beans here, you could substitute lima beans, edamame, or cannellini beans.
