Vegetarian 15-Bean Soup

Recipe by  

"A hearty, vegetarian soup perfect for warming the belly on a rainy day. My first foray into making a completely vegetarian soup, and I can say I didn't miss the meat component at all! Goes great with a crusty bread. Good for a large gathering of people or for plenty of leftovers! My original recipe yields a large pot of soup, so I always share with my parents and still have plenty left over for lunch or dinner the next day. Please note it is important to add salt with or before the beans so that the beans can absorb some of the salt, otherwise they can taste a little bland. The soup gets better with a little time and tastes awesome the next day."

This is great! When compared to the recipe on the bag of 15-bean soup, I love the addition of the veggies and the deletion of the meat. I had frozen kale in the freezer but no chard nor crimini on hand. I upped the kale and substituted portabello mushrooms. It was delicious.
