Another Soup Monday at Heather Lane Pottery Studio this week means we savored Asian Beef Vegetable Soup, a recipe from the cookbook Healthy Slow Cooker Revolution by America's Test Kitchen. We paired it with fresh baked ciabatta (Jim Lahey no-knead recipe).


Our Bee soup mug filled with savory Asian Beef Vegetable soup.


This recipe is Whole30 compatible if you switch the soy sauce for coconut aminos.
