I’m not sure how it happened but fall is in the air and soup season is here! Soup is the ultimate comfort food for those cold evenings when the darkness arrives early. And while there are plenty of decent soups you can eat by just opening a can, it’s “souper” simple to cook up your own hearty soup with nourishing ingredients like Michigan Beans. If you haven’t cooked many soups from scratch before it may be time to expand your horizons. Soup makes a great budget-friendly meal and by adding some convenient supermarket sides, like a green salad and a loaf of crusty bread, you have a quick and healthy meal. Using your small kitchen appliances can make the cooking process even easier. A large pot will do, but options exist for your slow cooker and Instant Pot.
Check out our delicious recipes below to see how to turn Michigan Beans and a few healthy ingredients into a hearty bowl of cozy comfort – just perfect for a busy weeknight supper.
