Healthy White Bean Chorizo Soup

I love that soup can be easy, healthy and a meal in and of itself. I usually steer clear of it because of the salt and the fact that I dont like to bloat like the goodyear blimp but this recipe is so healthy, low in salt and huge in flavor. I thought what a perfect thing to make during the weekday so that you can feed you and your neighbors/ boyfriend / eat the next day, whatever. I'm sure this will have your house smelling wonderful as an added bonus. Cheers to good health.
