Quick Fix: Warm up with a bowl of hardy veggie and bean soup

Hardy Vegetable and Bean Soup. (Linda Gassenheimer/TNS)

While looking for a warm and inviting winter meal, I thought a hot bowl of soup would be perfect. I love the welcoming smell of homemade soup. The best part is this soup is made in one pot and takes about 20 minutes from assembling the ingredients to cooking it. It’s a vegetarian meal that won’t break your calorie bank.
