Italian Style Bean Soup

Company's Coming Slow Cooker (1998) Recipes' "Beef Minestrone" soup revamped. It's now a vegetable and bean soup with Italian seasoning. Use OXO beef bouillon (make sure "wheat protein" is NOT listed in the ingredients) to keep it Gluten-free. A quick, hearty, satisfying soup.

1- 796 ml (19 oz) can diced tomatoes, with juice
1- 398 ml (14 z) can kidney or mixed beans with liquid
2 cups water
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup finely sliced carrots
2 cups diced potato
1 cup diced zucchini
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
3 teaspoons OXO* bouillon powder
1/2 teaspoon salt/ to taste
1/4 teaspoon pepper/ to taste

Combine all ingredients in large pot. Bring to a boil then simmer, covered 15-20 minutes until vegetables are cooked. Serve with Parmesan cheese if desired.

Serves 4

*read the ingredients. To make Gluten-Free soup, make sure "wheat protein" is not listed as an ingredient. OXO bouillon powder should be good, but always check the ingredients first.
