    This was good. DH liked it. I did use some homemade chicken broth but mostly water & sea salt. Made for Family Picks, ZWT6 Greece/Cyprus region, for my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood.

    Nice, filling soup. I did reduce the amount of oil greatly and made only half a batch. I used beans that I had cooked already, so I sauteed the vegetables in the oil first until tender and then I added the beans. Thank you for posting! Made for Swizzle Chicks and ZWT6.

    I halved the recipe for a good 4-6 servings of rich, thick soup. I like how it calls specifically for celery leaves, as I hate to waste them! The seasonings look sparse in this. However, I found the simple combination of navy beans, vegetables and olive oil give it a very pleasant flavour indeed. I did cut the EVOO back to just a couple tablespoons, since its taste is distinctive enough for me at that amount. I'm already looking forward to leftovers, and will surely make this back at university. Thanks for posting! - a ZWT 6 review.
