Tomato, Rice, Roasted Garlic & Navy Bean Soup from
Made with my old favorite, Muir Glen Fire Roasted Crushed Tomatoes. I can recall being 21 living on my own in East Cambridge, MA and first learning to cook - and finding a way to eat these once a week. They were constantly on sale at Harvest Coop and Whole Foods and I couldn't resist.
These days, I break them out a few times a year for soup or homemade sauce. Rest assure I haven't broken my old addiction completely and typically have one can in my cabinet.
This soup recipe is one of my favorites since testing for the cookbook. I typically find myself making half the recipe and it feeds me for many meals. But then again, I'm not big on leftovers. I'm also an evil person who subs onion powder for onions and adds a bunch of minced garlic.
