White bean soup is a Tuscan classic. White beans are a great source of fiber. Use jarred white beans if available—they are superior to canned.

Serves: 6


1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1/2 medium onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 ripe tomato, chopped

2 tsp dried oregano

Pinch of crushed red chili flakes

1 (20-oz) jar or can white beans, drained and rinsed

4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth

6-8 fresh basil leaves, minced

Juice of 1 fresh lemon

Sea salt, to taste


Heat oil in a large skillet sauce pot over medium heat. Sauté the onion and garlic for 1 minute, stirring often.

Add the tomato, oregano and crushed chili flakes. Continue to sauté for another minute. Add the beans and broth. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer and cook uncovered for 35 minutes until smooth and creamy.

Add the basil and lemon juice, season to taste with salt.
