Tuscan White Bean Soup {Secret Recipe Club}

 

It is no secret that I love soup, especially on a cold, dreary day.  I love the ease and simplicity of soup.  This soup is also very economical.  And a bonus?  The kids loved it!

My secret recipe club assignment this month was A Couple In The Kitchen.  After perusing the recipes on their site I settled on the white bean soup, though I was also considering the Spicy Chickpea and Carrot Tagine.  I made a couple changes to the recipe.  I omitted the pancetta, used dry beans, and added some veggies.  Like I already mentioned this recipe turned out great and is definitely one I will be making again.  My 5 year old even requested it in her lunch!

I highly recommend using dry beans.  Put them in the slow cooker in the morning and they will be ready by dinner time!

Tuscan White Bean Soup {Secret Recipe Club}

Serves 4-6

Tuscan White Bean Soup {Secret Recipe Club}

Ingredients

  • 2 cups dry white beans (you could also use 4 cans of beans)
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbs fresh rosemary, chopped fine
  • 2 tsp fresh sage, chopped fine
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 Tbs butter or non-dairy "butter"

Instructions

  1. Place beans in slow cooker and add enough water to cover the beans plus 1 inch.
  2. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or on low for 8-10 hours.
  3. Heat a small skillet over medium heat.
  4. Saute the veggies and the garlic until veggies are tender. Add the rosemary and sage and cook another 1-2 minutes.
  5. Add the veggies to the beans.
  6. You can puree the soup a little with an immersion blender if you have one. I simply placed half of the mixture in the blender and pulsed it a couple times.
  7. Add the blended soup back in with the whole beans.
  8. Add in the butter and cook until butter is melted.
  9. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Serve with crusty bread and a salad.

  5. This reminds me (in a good way) of the Campbell’s Bean and Ham soup. I used to love that soup but I’d always pick out all of the ham because I didn’t like it. I don’t do processed foods now, but sometimes I do miss some of the old favorites. I can’t wait to try this one! It looks delicious!
