    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.

    Great recipe! Like others, I pureed one can of the beans and one can was drained and rinsed, then dumped in. I did feel that I had to add quite a bit of sea salt and pepper...I also added a splash of skim milk, paprika, and a little herb de provence. We were scraping the bowls clean with a crusty artisan rye I bought. Thanks!

    Love this soup. First time i made this with homemade veg and chicken stock and 2nd time just homemade veg stock with a chicken stock cube. The first method seemed better
