      Good recipe, but how much beans are supposed to go into the soup? I used a can and realized that if I remove 2 cups of beans to puree, that's all the beans! This is more of a spinach soup that a bean soup.

      Very good! Filling and warming. I used low sodium chicken broth. The lemon juice was an excellent addition - nice little zip. Thanks for sharing!

      Very easy, very good, and I think it will be even better tomorrow. I used 2 cans pintos, because I had no white beans, 5 cups home made chicken stock and added a chopped carrot & 3 cloves of garlic. The lemon juice and thyme are very important; the thyme makes it fragrant, and it was really flat before I added the lemon juice.
