White Bean Soup comes together in minutes in this quick-fix recipe perfect for lunch or supper.
Simple, quick meals have always been one of my weeknight staples. I love to start the slow cooker early in the morning and be able to enjoy a delicious home cooked meal with my family for supper while still being able to run here and there during the day. Slow cooked pot roasts, shredded chicken, and pulled pork are some of my family’s favorites.
This week though, I had to think even more quickly to get a hot, delicious meal on the table for lunch! I had been deep into my morning work when my husband called and said he was coming home for lunch. Better yet, he would be home in about 15 minutes and needed to leave quickly for a meeting. He hadn’t been feeling well and just wanted something hot and homemade.
Yikes! Talk about pressure!
I knew a quick soup would be perfect.
My husband walked in the door to a pot full of soup being ladled up from the stove.
I think I impressed him.
To be honest, I think I impressed myself!
