Tomato Green Bean Soup

Rated as 4.65 out of 5 Stars

"'This colorful soup is delicious anytime of year,' notes Bernice Nolan of Granite City, Illinois. 'When I can't get homegrown tomatoes and green beans, I've found that frozen beans and canned tomatoes (or even stewed tomatoes) work just fine. Served with warm breadsticks, this soup is a complete meal. My husband and I enjoy it as a meatless dish, but you could also add diced chicken or ham.'"

This soup tasted rather bland to me. It's probably not one I'd choose to make again.
