Description

Creamy vegan Tuscan Tomato and Bean Soup is made with fresh garden tomatoes, canned white beans, garlic and rosemary. It is healthy, hearty and delicious


Ingredients

Scale

3 pounds fresh tomatoes
2 15-oz cans cannellini, great Northern or navy beans, drained
2 medium carrots
2 celery stalks
2 garlic cloves
1 medium onion
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
½ teaspoon dried rosemary
3 cups vegetable broth
garlic croutons & chopped fresh basil (optional garnish)


Instructions

  1. Chop carrots, celery, onions and garlic and set aside.
  2. Dice tomatoes leaving the skin on.
  3. In a large Dutch oven or pot with a thick bottom heat olive oil, add carrots, onions and celery and sauté on low stirring from time to time until softened, about 5-10 minutes. Add garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper and cook stirring another minute or so until fragrant.
  4. Add chopped tomatoes, stir, turn the heat up to medium-low and cook together stirring a couple more minutes.
  5. Pour in the broth, cover with a lid and cook the soup until the carrots are soft and tomatoes start falling apart, about 20-30 minutes. Turn off the heat.
  6. Stir in one and a half cans of white beans. Reserve the remaining ½ can to be added as garnish at the end. If you prefer all the beans to be blended, add 2 whole cans of beans to the soup at this stage.
  7. Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth. You can also blend the soup in a standup blender by cooling the soup until no longer hot and blending in batches.
  8. Give the soup a taste and season with more salt and pepper, if needed.
  9. Serve hot with reserved white beans, croutons, fresh basil and more rosemary, if desired.

 

Notes

This soup recipe is vegan but for a non-vegan version feel free to use chicken broth instead of vegetable broth and add some freshly grated parmesan on top.
