Ingredients

  • 2 cups canned white beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup carrot
  • 1.5 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 cups crushed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2.5 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan

Instructions

  • Melt butter in a soup pot or a dutch oven. Add chopped onion, celery, and garlic. Cook for a minute.
  • Add chopped carrot and saute for a couple of minutes. The veggies would be softened by now.
  • Add crushed tomato, tomato paste, oregano, salt, pepper, rosemary sprig, bay leaf, and stock to the pot. Stir everything well. Once it comes to a boil, simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in 1/2 cup of white beans to the pot. Using a hand blender blitz everything until smooth.
  • Stir in the rest of the bean, grated parmesan to the soup. Give everything a good mix.
  • Serve with bread.

Notes

  1. If the soup is too tart because of tomatoes, add 1/2 teaspoon of sugar to balance the sourness.
  2. I like to add 1/4 teaspoon of chilli flakes to the soup for an extra kick. 
  3. You can add a handful of spinach or kale towards the end while adding parmesan cheese.
