This Vegetarian bean soup recipe is not only vegetarian, but thanks to the vegetable bouillon, it is also vegan. The beans really pack a lot of protein and carbs. Once you add the diced tomatoes, you have everything you need in a meal! However, it’s understandable if you need something to go along with your soup, like some fresh bread.
Because beans and canned tomatoes are relatively inexpensive, this is a great winter meal for when you are trying to stay on a tight budget. Plus, each individual jar makes eight servings, so it can last you a while! And this recipe makes four jars. If you aren’t able to finish all eight servings within a few days, you can freeze portioned leftovers to easily be heated up when you need it.
