One of the reasons I love winter is that it gives me the opportunity to prepare thick and hearty soups and stews.
One of my favorite ingredients to base a hearty meal in a bowl on is beans; favas, limas, navy, black, kidney, you name it, it finds a way into one of my creations.
This recipe is one I made up on the fly. It is so simple and made the house smell like a French Restaurant in the springtime! It turned out so good that I have to make it again. That, and my daughter says I owe her the recipe, so here it is!
