This Easy Three Beans and Greens Stew is a semi-homemade soup that uses a mix of canned soups and veggies for a delicious and creamy soup perfect for a busy night when you want a quick and filling dinner.
In the busy month of December, it’s a rare and treasured Saturday morning in our house when my daughter and I have no plans!
On those rare Saturdays, we usually pack a backpack with snacks and get ready to head out for a long hike. But, somewhere between getting the tinsel off the dogs leashes and turning over piles of cards to find the keys and setting the navigational system to avoid holiday traffic, we manage to forget about our snack-filled-backpack until we are halfway through our hike!
Yikes! I know you must be wondering what do we do – right?!
Turning around wouldn’t make sense as we are halfway through… better yet to keep on hiking… and head to Sam’s Club to fill up on samples soon after – right?!
Yes, we are those people that head to Sam’s Club to fill up on samples and samples alone but then end up heading out with a shopping cart filled with toilet paper, kitchen towels, avocados, shampoo, and soap (those deals are hard to beat). Though, during the holiday season, a 6 pack Swanson® Chicken Broth (32oz) and a 10 pack Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (10.5 oz) indubitably get added to that shopping cart as well!
No, we don’t usually work our way through all the 6 packs of Swanson® Chicken Broth or all of the 10 cans of Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup. I like having a couple of packs of Swanson®Chicken Broth and Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup on hand to whip up quick and easy soups and stews like this Three Beans and Greens Stew during those busy nights during the holiday season.
As for the rest, we usually donate it to a local church pantry or food bank. This year I heard that the North Gwinnett Cooperative will be putting together Christmas Boxes to be distributed to area seniors and I figured they sure could use the extra packs of Swanson® Chicken Broth as well as Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup.
I was thrilled to learn that Swanson® Chicken Broth comes in resealable packages and is 100% Natural – with absolutely nothing artificial added (no MSG, no artificial flavors or preservatives).
And, Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup AND Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup have no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives! By the way, Sam’s Club has the pantry packs you need of Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup, Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup, and Swanson® Chicken Broth to get you through the holidays!
If you would like to sample Swanson® Chicken Broth, you can do so at Sam’s Club’s annual Holiday Taste of Sam’s – which is a huge in-store sampling event on Dec 21 and 22. Swanson® Chicken Broth will be sampled with Idahoan Mashed Potatoes during this event.
On the days of the event, Sam’s Club members can also take advantage of the temporary price reduction of $1.50 off Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup and Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup! I know we are a household of only two, but I love being a Sam’s Club member because the deals (even without those extra price reductions) are hard to beat!
This holiday season, when your nights are busy with wrapping and decorating and baking and card writing, I sure hope you get the chance to whip up this quick, easy, creamy and delicious Three Beans and Greens Stew!
