"This was dinner tonight. I made a couple small changes only because it's the day before Grocery Day and I wanted to use what I had on hand. Instead of celery seed (which I did not have), I used Beau M..." See moreonde seasoning (not the all purpose Beau Monde, the kind that is basically onion powder and celery salt), I used all chopped red pepper and Steam Fresh frozen whole green beans. Terrible name or not, my whole family loved this soup.......even the picky youngest child. I have to admit I was sketchy about using jarred three bean salad but it totally works. Great flavors, awesome combination of ingredients! I paired this with homemade Skillet Rolls and it was a very comforting and filling meal."
