Vegetable Soup with Lima Beans (Vegan & Low-Glycemic)

Vegetable soup in a bowl.

I didn’t cook any soup this summer because we’ve been having a hot and sunny summer here in Toronto and I didn’t feel like having soup at all. But last week, we had a few chilly evenings so I decided to make some soup with lima beans.

Happy to report that the fabulous warm weather returned to Toronto and it looks like it is going to be sunny and hot all week 🙂
