Vegetable Turkey And 15 Bean Soup

Vegetable Turkey And 15 Bean Soup 2

Now that Thanksgiving is over, the turkey is almost gone and I’m 5 pounds in regret… It’s time to spend at least a week before the Christmas cookies start to be everywhere that I need to give my body a rest. This soup is just that kind of soup. Full of flavor, veggies and beans, your body will say… thank you! I hope you give this soup a try and if you love beans you will love this soup. I serve it with some fresh rosemary bread and a lot of LOVE…

    1. Thanks Laura, Let me introduce myself. I’m Heidi the other half of The Fabulous Fare Sisters… Linda and I each blog every other day. I’m the odd days and Linda is the even days. I’m really glad I could share the 15 bean bag. My hubby introduced me to it three years ago. When he said it I thought the same thing as you… Who would have that many beans in the pantry?
