Vegetable Soup. My Favourite

This soup consists of a three bean mix together with a wide variety of vegetables. Macadamia Nuts and Herbs and Spices to taste.

After half hour hours add cahew and macadamia nuts & peas. At less than the one hour mark you should be able to tell by sight how well it is cooked and if it ready to serve. Take off heat and leave for ten minutes it is then ready to serve.
