    - Carla -'s Note:

    This thick and garlicky soup is a Mediterranean classic normally made from dried beans slowly cooked with potatoes, onions, and garlic. This version takes advantage of cooked beans and a food processor to produce a quick and hearty dinner soup. Serve with plenty of good crusty bread.

      I found this recipe to be very good, but only gave it four stars as it called for (in my opinion) way too much celery and onions. I cut the onions back to 1/2 cup and the celery to 1 cup. I also added 1/3 cup grated carrots. My husband loved it!

      I've had this with the lemon juice and without as well as with chicken and with beef broth. Each time tasted great. It does take a little bit of time to cut up the onion, potato and carrot but it's worth it. Great soup.

      Super tasty! And pretty easy to make too. I only had one can of cannelini beans on hand, so I improvised a bit. Reduced the amount of stock used in each of the steps (but used close to 3 cups total). Forgot the lemon juice and it still was delicious! Increased the rosemary since it's my favorite herb. Thanks so much for sharing...I know this will be in the regular rotation as we come into fall/winter.
