Paul’s Spicy Vegetarian Three Bean Soup
Sunday, October 30, 2022 @ 6:29 AM

In this first recipe on this brand-new blog, Paul Whitelock offers us a vegetarian/vegan thick soup which he tried for the first time yesterday, 29 October 2022. Paul had been working outside in the garden and it was a little chilly, so he fancied something warming. He had three jars of different coloured beans in the pantry and this is what he came up with.
