I believe this came from Tyler Florence a few years back. I may have tweaked it **wink, wink**.

I made this soup for passover and everyone loved it! My husband told the guest that this was probably similar to the soup that Jacob made and Esau sold his birthright over. One of the people there said, "I can see why." Will be making again very soon!! I couldn't find any fennel and I didn't put red onion in it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in your soup pot and add the onions, garlic, thyme and rosemary. I just add the herbs whole and pull out the stems at the end.
  2. When the onions become soft, add the tomatoes and lamb. Cook until the tomatoes begin to break apart and then add stock (5 min.).
  3. Season and simmer until meat is tender. This should be only about 20 minutes.
  4. Add the beans, mashing part of them to thicken soup. Cook until hot throughout. Check seasoning.
  5. Serve with a sprinkling of shaved fennel, red onion and chopped, fresh parsley and a drizzle of your best extra-virgin olive oil.
