      This was a really delicious vegan soup. Its really hearty and filling. It always seems like there is a little something missing in soup stocks for vegan recipes, but the mix of spices really make this soup very flavorful. I couldnt stop eating it. Its great with warm foccacia bread too, FYI..

      I gave this recipe 4 stars because made some adjustments to the soup and the instructions leave out completely when to add the spices, etc. First, I added two cubes of vegan bouillon to the soup. Added a few splashes of good Marsala wine to the onion, garlic, celery mix. Once the soup was almost ready, added some fresh baby spinach and whole wheat macaroni. This was a delicious soup!

      Very nice, and very filling. On my second try I did not cook the beans until tender but left them slightly "al dente", which I liked better. Freezes and reheats very well.
