Diane's notes for this recipe:
A healthy soup full of fiber and protein. I created this using low fat Kielbasa sausage. Meatless version is just as good.

I made this the other day and it was really good. Very hearty and sticks to your ribs. I just have a couple of suggestions. There are a lot of novice cooks out there so the ingredients and cooking methods need to be pretty specific. It may sound silly but seasoned cooks know to chop veggies etc--but your recipe says 2 stalks of celery 2 carrots and 1 to 2 large onions. If I didn't know how to cook I mught just throw them in the pot. I would hope that people aren't that dense-but you never know!! LOL. You did not mention the size of the can of tomatoes or the size of the bag of beans, though--so that could make a difference.
