There is nothing so satisfying as a warm bowl of flavorful, filling and comforting five bean soup on a snowy winter day. I know that sometimes it is hard to obtain a full flavored bean soup if it does not contain a seasoning meat, but I think this one is very successful! I made both a herb seasoning packet for the soup plus homemade vegetarian bouillon granules. That homemade bouillon made all the difference. This became a “Homemade Soup in a Jar” that makes four quarts of soup mix. Each quart jar makes about 2 1/2 quarts of soup. With the holiday season right around the corner, a jar of homemade soup mix makes a thoughtful gift. Are you having a gift exchange at work? Maybe a gift exchange at school or your card club? Putting together these jars of soup mix would be a great cooking/craft project for kids.
Let’s get started!
First we’ll put all the jars together, then cook up a kettle of deliciousness!
