[ Recipe: Tuscan White Bean Soup with Rosemary ] ~ from Monterey Bay Herb Co
tuscan white bean soup with rosemary

This soup is ready in minutes and fragrant from the moment the herbs hit the pan until the last of the hot steam rises from the soup bowl. This soup pairs well with croutons, crostini or bread sticks.

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 onions, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
3 fresh sage leaves, chopped
½ teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons grain mustard
4 cans white beans, rinsed and drained
Splash of red wine
5 cups vegetable stock
2 tablespoons dried rosemary
Sea salt and cracked pepper to taste

Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven. Add the onions, garlic, sage and pepper flakes. Cook together for 3 to 5 minutes until the onions become translucent. Stir in tomato paste, mustard and beans. Continue cooking for one minute; splash the pot with red wine while scraping the bottom of the pot to pick up any browned bits. Add the vegetable stock, rosemary and season with salt and pepper. Bring just to the boil, then reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 10 minutes more, and then puree with an immersion blender until smooth.
