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.
We loved this!! Deliciously flavorful, easy to make and healthy! I added some mushrooms and zucchini I had on hand that needed to be used, but other than that I followed the directions exact. I forgot to leave my review when I first made this and we have had it a couple of times since. Every time with delicious results.
