Rustic Potato & Bean Soup

I love soups year-round, but this rustic potato and bean soup is so satisfying in the winter when you just want to hunker down with a warm bowl of soup. This soup is the perfect one-pot meal and doesn’t take a lot of prep time.

 

 

Soup made ahead and portioned make great grab-n-go lunches or dinners on busy evenings. I like to store soup in quart canning jars, they stay fresher longer. Soups can also be frozen, so if you have leftovers, stock your freezer and you’ll have meals ready to go.
