    Was just going to post this and here it is! From the Bon Appetit site, I followed some of the reviewers suggestions and it was very flavorful! Here are some of those suggestions: Be sure to use fresh thyme and rosemary. Also used half chicken broth/half beef broth, the rest water. (only 3 cups of water) Add the minced rosemary to the cooking liquid of the beans. Add some sea salt in the last 15 minutes of cooking time. Add first sage leaves, then cubed celery to onions when frying them, before adding the canned tomatoes. Plenty of salt and pepper and a squeeze or two of lemon makes this very good. With those suggestions, I think this is a really great soup. Thanks for posting, Bev

    A wonderful soup. I did make a switch in the beans though, I used black beans because I had them ready to go. It's hearty and very tasty and is a meal in it's self. I really liked the rosemary with the beans, they were most complimentary. Easy to make and whats better than homemade soup? It's a keeper.
