There are three things that get me through a chilly Canadian winter — a warm blanket and a warm cat both spread on my lap, shivering glances at the calendar waiting for the pages to turn, and a hot steaming bowl of a thick homemade bean and vegetable soup. This soup is just the thing on those days when the winter wind swirls about the house looking for a crack to get through — hearty and nutritious white beans and butternut squash surrounded by a rich and lightly spiced mushroom broth and healthy slices of wilted kale, it's a great way to warm you up and fill you up before composing yourself under some more nice warm blankets for the evening. Apart from some chopping preparation, it's a fast and simple soup to make and enjoy.
