When it’s cold outside, we turn to soups. A great soup can make you feel just as good as sitting by a wood stove on a wintry day. This Cozy Winter White Bean Soup will warm your heart and nourish your body. It’ll sustain that warmth, too, filling you up and giving you energy to carry you right through the day. It’s full of nutrients and protein. Pair it with some crusty whole-grain bread to make the perfect meal. Try making it for a holiday party — it’s great for large groups.
