White bean and pasta soup is one of the best winter time treats! It is what we call a “comfort food” and all I can say is when I eat this stuff, I truly get that comfort feeling going.

It is a vegan friendly meal and one of the first I tried as I begin my transition into trying to become a vegan.

This is a pretty simple recipe, but does have quite a few ingredients. So, I recommend getting all the ingredients ready so you can easily add them along the way.

The recipe was adapted from the Taste of Home version and serves about 6 people. Add some homemade Nordic stone bread and you have a filling – and healthy meal.
