There is something about a warm vegetable soup in the winter that just hits the spot. This vegetable bean soup recipe is one of my go-to recipes during the winter to keep me warm. It is packed with healthy fresh organic vegetables, like zucchini, tomatoes, carrots and celery. I add great northern beans for extra fiber, and pasta for carbs. I make a huge batch that lasts a few days – just keep the leftover soup in the fridge. Add this vegetable soup as a side to your favorite sandwich for a fresh, healthy lunch! I usually make a large batch right after a trip to the farmers’ market and pick up some fresh vegetables – yum! You can top it with Parmesan cheese, or to make it healthier you can omit it.
