Spicy Sausage & Garbanzo Bean Soup


I enjoy making a pot of soup at the beginning of the week. It allows me to have something easy to take with my lunches to work – and gives my hubby something that he can eat during the weekdays as well. We love decadently creamy soups, but both of us are trying to lose weight right now (which is why my postings have been sporadic) and decadently creamy is not on the menu. This soup is filling and good for you.
