Giada's Tuscan White Bean and Garlic Soup

Giada's Tuscan White Bean and Garlic Soup created by Karabea

Love, love, love this recipe! It's done in less than 20 minutes and is so flavorful and creamy. Perfect with a salad and garlic bread or a grilled cheese! I have made my own alterations/additions to this recipe. Here's a tip on the sage: sometimes I'll use dried sage instead of the fresh sage leaf and in that case I start with about a teaspoon and add more to taste if need be. Also, I use my immersion blender and puree the soup right in the pot rather than using a regular blender...Giada just uses a regular blender, either way works fine! Enjoy!

directions

  • In a large soup pot, saute shallots or onion and garlic with butter and olive oil until soft, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add drained beans, sage, and broth. Bring to a simmer and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • If using an immersion blender: blend soup until smooth. If using a regular blender: pour half of mixture into blender and puree until smooth. Pour blended soup back into pan and blend remaining soup, then pour the rest of the blended soup back into pan.
  • Add cream, black pepper, and salt to taste. Keep warm over very low heat!

    Is there a way to make this the day before? Either all the way or.... Can I cook it to the point just before adding the cream, salt & pepper, refrigerate overnight, then warm it up and add those 3 items? Thanks

    Oooh, just the thing for the first day after setting the clocks back! Tasty and easy.

    What a wonderful soup. Made half a recipe for the two of us and was so flavorful. DH kept commenting on it all night. Served with Jamie Oliver's quesadillas.

    I have made this twice and it is the BOMB! So flavorful, just an awesome and EASY! dish, along with the baguette or french bread, great eating!

    Delicious! Didn't have the sage, so I added a little herbs de provence and some paprika. Blended about 2/3 of the beans with some of the broth and threw some chopped kale into the pot for about 5-6 minutes before adding back the pureed beans and cream (used 1/2 & 1/2). Reminded me of Olive Garden's Zuppa Toscana (which I love).
