Bean and vegetable soup

I made this soup today and tasty really good
1 can of cannellini beans(you can use any kind)
1 tomato chopped
1 onion chopped
1 carrot chopped
1/2 tsp each of oregano(or herb of your choice) and pepper
1 tsp lemon juice
salt to taste
2 cans of low sodium chicken broth
garnish -cilantro

Heat a tbsp of olive oil.
Add onion and tomato and carrots.Saute for 5 mins.then add herbs and seasonings.
Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a boil.Then add beans and boil for 10 -15 mins. serve hot with a piece of crusty bread.Its a very simple soup which you can make with all items easily available from your pantry.I add cooked chicken to the soup sometimes to make it more yummier.....
The other types of beans you can use are kidney beans,garbanzo beans,pinto beans etc
