quick and simple... but the flavor was a bit too bland for me (I used navy beans). I ended up adding a little more garlic and some dijon mustard - 1/2 tsp or less. This alone was good, but then I added 1/2 tsp curry and it was a whole new soup. Warm comfort food! My 2 year old couldn't get enough of it. This soup is ok alone, and a great base to add favorite flavors to.
I liked the flavor of this soup, although I thought the finished dish came out a bit thin. I love that it's so easy to prepare, making it perfect for a weeknight dinner with some hearty bread of a salad on the side. I didn't use the mint, as I don't care for it, but I added a bit of crumbled goat cheese into the soup before serving, which was very good.
loved it, i didn't use mint but may have to try that next time. Left everything else as written except i added it all to my crockpot on low for a few hours. This is so easy and healthy, i just can't wait to eat the left overs :)
This is one of my favorite soups! When I'm pureeing the artichoke hearts and beans, I add a little of the chicken broth to make sure the mixture is extra smooth. It gives the soup a great texture. I also shake in some Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese.
My entire family loves this soup. It is a great quick dinner when accompanied by bread and fruit. The artichoke flavor really comes through in the soup. I haven't tried the mint garnish - will have to try that next time.
