Bean and vegetable soups are what I lean on when either my budget or my time (or both) is limited. We always have dried beans and jarred tomatoes tucked away in the pantry. When you tuck them into a pot with good broth and plenty of vegetables, they come together to make a wholesome, fast, and inexpensive soup.

Hearty kidney beans and starchy Russet potatoes fill out a tomato-rich broth that's dotted with aromatics like carrots, celery and onions. The combination is utterly simple and uncomplicated, but flavor-forward and deeply satisfying, especially when paired with toasted bread and a salad.
Do the vegetables need to be organic?
No, the vegetables do not need to be organic. Organic status typically does not impact how well, or whether a dish will come together. By and large, we generally purchase organic in my home, but that doesn't mean you have to.
Thanks for the tip on treating the beans if you don't have a pressure cooker! Looks fantastic.
