Hodgepodge (Vegetable Bean) Soup

For this flavorful and healthy soup, I just threw in a little of this, and a little of that. It paired well with the homemade sharp cheddar biscuits I whipped up.

olive oil
chopped red onion
chopped green pepper
minced garlic
4 cups chicken broth
1 small (15 oz) can Del Monte diced tomatoes
1 cup frozen green beans
1/2 cup cooked black beans
1/2 cup cooked red beans
dried basil, oregano, mustard seed, bay leaf and salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup frozen corn

In a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat, add a little oil. Saute onion and green pepper til softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in onion and saute another minute or so.

Increase heat to high and add remaining ingredients, except corn. Bring to a simmer. Cover and reduce heat to medium low. Simmer soup about 20 minutes. Stir in corn and simmer another 5 minutes or til corn is heated through.

I served the soup with homemade sharp cheddar biscuits.http://media-files.gather.com/images/d557/d244/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
