Three Bean Soup

My parents and I went nuts over a soup I threw together a few days ago. Its not you average vegetable soup!
I tried to make it as simple as possible, Can goods, lots of canned goods. They really aren't that bad with the sodium, you just have to know what too look for. I always pick the "organic" canned beans before the name brands "low sodium". Most of the organic brand canned, beans and vegetables are 100mg less per serving or more. Look at the labels, always! Just b/c it says low sodium does not mean it is...

This Soup is rich in Fiber, Protien and Potassium. So if you need to stay away from excessive potassium I would not recommend this soup. But, it is perfect for those with Hyper Aldostronism.

Three Bean Soup:
1 can organic black beans (drained rinsed)
1 can organic great northern beans (drained rinsed)
1 cup shelled edemame (you can add them frozen)
1 cup V8 (low sodium)
1 can organic low sodium chicken broth
1 can petite diced no salt added tomatoes (basil oregano if available)
1tbls garlic powder
1tbls dried onion flakes
1 package of cheese tortellini (not the family size)

Place first 8 ingredients in pot and bring to a boil. add tortellini and cook until the tortellinis are double their original size.

this soup is best after it sits a day or two... it makes 5 generous servings. Add water and more V8 for a ruuny soup.

I have worked on so many crafty projects this past year here is one of them! A baby blanket for a new arrival! I just mailed it off so this might be a spoiler for the mommy.... Sorry Sara ;)
