Soups are comforting and delicious. Eating soup is soothing and warming. And soups are usually nutritious since you need to pack in quite a good amount of veggies and other ingredients in order to make a hearty, filling soup. You can also make yummy high-protein soups, and they’re especially delicious with beans. We put together 10 delicious high-protein bean soups with legumes like black beans, kidney beans, black eyed peas (which, yes are beans despite their name), and garbanzo beans.
