Hearty Chicken Cannellini Soup

What does one do in the midst of a blizzard? Make a large pot of hearty, hot soup! Everyone in the family gave this a two thumbs up.  It is very hearty, simple, and delicious!

Vegetarian or on a tight budget? Omit the chicken as the beans will provide plenty of protein and are budget friendly.`

Ingredients, place in a large NOT non-stick pot:
1 32 oz. carton organic vegetable broth
1 can Muir Glen stewed tomatoes
1 can organic tomato paste -
     stir in with first two ingredients and wait 15 min. before adding remaining foods.

12 oz. dry Cannellini Beans (Bob's Red Mill) soaked as directed
1 can organic black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 onion chopped, pre-sauteed with turmeric in olive oil
5 lage cloves of fresh garlic chopped
2 organic chicken breast, pre-cooked, chopped
1 T. Herbamare seasoning
1/2 tsp. organic rosemary

Garnish, if desired, befoe serving each bowl:
Red bell pepper, chopped
Feta - Athenos rosemary/basil, crumbled

I had canned organic black beans on hand, and as I added as an afterthought, I did not have my usual dry beans soaked and ready to go. The beans provide protein and make this soup very filling.
