Cook This: White Bean Soup

You’re hungry. But you’re craving something warm and hearty. But hold the protein! What’s a gal or guy to cook? White bean soup. Le duh! This is an adaptation of my mama’s cannellini bean soup recipe (she holds the chicken broth and goes true vegetarian):


2 cans of cannellini beans

2 cans of water

1 whole sweet onion, chopped

3 carrots, chopped

2 stalks of celery, chopped

1 cube of chicken broth

1/2 cup olive oil 


In a large pot, heat up enough olive oil to coat the bottom. Sauté the chopped onions, carrots, celery and chicken broth cube. Once the onions are translucent, add the beans (undrained). Cover with water. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until soup gets thick. Add more water if necessary. You can always add spinach or Canadian bacon in the first step, too. Enjoy!
