Doc has asked me to try a plant based diet, or take his Statin drugs......I am trying the diet. This soup is GOOD! I decided to make soup today, because it cooled off, a lot and I picked a large handful of fresh green beans out of the garden this am. I had some freezer sweet corn in the frige and the last fresh tomato of the season; from there I just started chopping up other stuff I had on hand. Hubby is terrified, he's seen his last bacon cheeseburger, but he did like the soup.
