    Aaliyah's&Aaron'sMum's Note:

    A beautiful thick soup which I usually serve for lunch with a crisp salad and crusty bread. Added in after couple of reviewers have stated that the beans took a bit longer to cook for them, I have now mentioned in the instructions to cook longer, if necessary, till tender. Having said that, I have always cooked mine for an hour without any problem!

      I love this soup but I make it with jars of beans and with a tablespoon of fresh Rosemary, finely chopped and the bruised before it's added to the soup. Delicious.

      I enjoyed this soup more than DD. I've averaged our ratings giving mine more weight. I thought the soup was delicious. The beans did take longer to cook than the recipe states.

      A very rich and thick and sustaining sort of soup. I did add diced tomatoes in their juice instead of the puree (and a bit more than 3 tablespoons)and I added in some parmesan rind (I always save them for soups and stews). My only other deviation was to cook the soup for longer than directed as it took a while for my beans to soften. The result is a wonderful soup enjoyed by all on this cold and snowy day.
