Very light and tasty. It's a quick and satisfying soup. I used great northern beans instead of cannelini and it worked just fine. I think any white bean (such as navy) would be just fine. Thanx for posting. I'll make this again!

Mmm this was good! I made this for my breakfast, lol! I accidentally bought a can of diced tomatoes that had chili seasonings in it so I omitted all but a dash of chili powder. I couldn't find cannelini beans so used canned Great Northern beans. I used 1 tsp of jarred minced garlic, followed the rest of the recipe as directed but added no salt. I enjoyed this with toasted french bread and herb butter. I did decide to try this with parmesan cheese, though normally I would have left it off due to my dietary needs. This was better than I hoped, and I will make it again. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game. Thanks for sharing, Kitzy!
