This rich and flavorful soup is great paired with a simple salad for a lunchtime meal or as an evening snack all on its own.
1 Tbsp. olive oil or vegetable oil
2/3 cup celery (diced)
2 yellow onions (diced)
2 large carrots (diced)
2 cups vegetable juice (V8 works great)
48 oz. fully cooked white beans (rinsed)
14 oz. diced tomatoes
2 medium-sized potatoes (peeled and diced)
1/2-1 tsp. smoke powder (hickory smoke is best)
