Cajun Roasted Chicken and Vegetable 15 Bean Soup

Cajun Roasted chicken & Vegetable 15 bean soup

Hip Hip Hooray…a healthy recipe.

There was a time when I would never consider soup a meal. I assumed that soup would never fill me up, but I ate this soup today for lunch and it held my hunger at bay until dinnertime. My Cajun Roasted Chicken and Vegetable 15 Bean Soup is a full meal that is packed with protein and filling healthy carbohydrates.

I guarantee that if you make this healthy and hearty soup your whole being will be satisfied.

Oh course I reached for the ever so familiar package of Hurst’s Beans. I am a huge supporter of USA family owned and operated companies and Hurst’s just so happens to be just that….family owned and operated since 1938.

    This looks very very tasty. I do eat a plant based diet so I have to modify the recipe just a little bit and remove the chicken. The ingredient s will still make an awesome soup!
