Mixed Bean Soup

Today I wasn't feeling good at work. I didn't eat much for lunch and I didn't really feel like making or eating supper. I did muster the energy to go for a run and to do Ripped in 30 after supper though! :)

I needed something super easy and I wanted it to be Low GI. So I threw something together that I had in my cupboard and it turned out really well. The only real work I did was to pick and peel the carrots.

Mixed Bean Soup

1 can diced tomatoes
1 can cut green beans
1 can mixed beans
5 large carrots, peeled & sliced
2 cloves of garlic, pressed
2-3 tbsp beef bouillon (to taste)
2 bay leaves
1 tsp basil
1 tsp fresh ground pepper
water to cover ingredients

Combine all ingredients. Bring to boil, then simmer for 20 minutes or until carrots are tender.


It was that easy! Eric really liked it as well, and I was happy I didn't have to do a lot of work. Next time I might add another can of mixed beans. They make you feel like you are eating meat! :)
