Sopa de Feijao - Bean Soup

I love soup, I don’t care if it’s winter, fall, summer or spring, it doesn’t stop me and my family from enjoying a good bowl of soup.

I wanted to make something different tonight but was really in the mood for a big bowl of chunky soup, so bean soup it is.

There are many ways of making a Portuguese soup, this is just the way I make it.

In a big pot, add a little bit of olive oil, the garlic, carrots, parsnips and tomato. Fry for a few minutes until the vegetables are halfway cooked.
