White Bean Soup

January 29, 2010

~ Mary ~

 

A couple of years ago I found myself with a plethora of frozen spinach, canned tomatoes and white beans – I threw them in a pot and so began our love for White Bean Soup, but not until I prepared the beans this way did the soup truly reach nirvana.

White Bean Soup

makes about 2 quarts

 

In large sauce pan over medium high heat saute:

1 large onion

2-3 Chopped Cloves Garlic

2 Cups Sliced Smoked Polish Sausage

 

Add:

4 Cups Canned Diced Tomatoes

4 Cups Cooked White Beans – preferably a half recipe from HERE WITH all the extra broth

3-4 Cups Chicken or Beef Broth  only if you don’t have the beans and the broth from right above

 

Let simmer 20-30 minutes then add:

2 Cups Frozen Chopped Spinach

optional to add a little (approx 1 -2 tsp each) rosemary and basil, but really only if you put in plain white beans do you need these.

 

Cook until heated through then stir in

1/2 to 1 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese

Serve in bowls and top with Parm too
