In short, this creamy bean soup is comforting and rich. Plus, it’s very inexpensive to make so you can fit it into almost any tight budget even though it tastes like a million bucks. And unlike other comfort foods, it’s actually super good for you. It’s vegetarian for one thing. And for another the only fat in the soup comes from good for you olive oil and a tiny bit from some Parmesan cheese. There’s no heavy cream. So you don’t have to feel the tiniest bit guilty about dipping in some rustic bread and sopping up all the soupy goodness. Because using a bread for a spoon is fantastic.

Even more awesome? This hearty soup comes together so easily. Most Tuscan inspired dishes use very few ingredients and are easy to put together. This dish is no exception.easy-tuscan-white-bean-soup-5

Thank goodness because Goose has been quite demanding of attention lately. Fortunately, her newest thing is adorable instead of exasperating. Her new favorite thing is saying, “Tiss Mama!” and lifting up her feet for me to kiss her stinky toes. I lean in to give them kisses and then make a face and say, “EW! Stinky!”

Eating soup with crusty rustic bread is definitely a win

Thank goodness this is quick to make so I could get back to giving Goose and her stinky toes kisses and making her laugh hysterically. And really is there anything better than making your little one belly laugh? I can’t think of anything.

Ingredients

  • 5 16 ounce cans of cannelini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 9 cups of vegetable stock
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbs thyme
  • 1 tbs rosemary
  • 2 bay leaves
  • pinch of red pepper flakes*
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large sauce pot.
  2. Chop the onion and add it to the pot. Season it with salt and pepper and bay leaves. Let cook for 1-2 minutes, then press the garlic and add to the onions.
  3. Cook garlic and onion over medium heat for 5-6 minutes, until onion is softened. Stir consistently to make sure the onion and garlic don't burn.
  4. Drain and rinse the beans. Add them to the pot.
  5. Pour in the stock.
  6. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
  7. When the soup simmers, pour about 5 cups of the bean and stock mix into a blender. Blend until smooth, and pour back into the pot.
  8. Bring back to a simmer and then reduce heat to medium low and let slowly simmer for another 15 minutes. Soup should thicken during this time.
  9. Finish soup by stirring in thyme, rosemary, red pepper, and Parmesan cheese.
  10. Serve hot with crusty bread. Garnish with cheese and fresh rosemary.

Notes

*Omit red pepper flakes if desired.

      Soon I’m sure, depending on where you are. It’s not really soup weather during the day here yet, but at night, GAME ON!

      I’m so jealous!! Did you have an amazing time? I feel like this soup would definitely give you that holiday feeling. Tuscan food is supposed to be simple but it’s delicious in its simplicity.

      It fed us two whole dinners and I had it for lunch twice. It was just as good each time too.
