You say… “15 minutes for a warm and yummy White Bean Soup?” “For a cozy and hearty meal on a blustery day?”

I say, “Yes!”

Any day of the week!

There are days when I love to simmer a stew or soup… all day long.

And then there are days when that is only a pipe dream.

It’s those days I pull out this healthy, hearty soup; packed with vegetables like onion, garlic, carrots, green beans, tomatoes, and spinach.

And I can’t believe it’s possible to deliver such a delicious soup… in 15 minutes– maybe less.

But it is!

A couple of notes on prep:

Prepping Ahead

When this soup is on the weekly dinner schedule, I will chop the onion, garlic, and carrots ahead. Green beans too if I’m using fresh. Most often on a Sunday afternoon. I will then refrigerate the chopped veggies in a sealed container until soup night.

Everything else is store-bought ready.

Tomatoes

This recipe calls for one can of diced tomatoes. I prefer fire-roasted tomatoes as it gives the soup a little kick. But use your favorite.

Green Beans

I love to use fresh green beans from the garden when available… but frozen works fine too.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 carrots, chopped
1 cup fresh green beans, cut (or use frozen cut — super quick)
6 cups vegetable broth (or chicken broth)
1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes (I like Fire Roasted), drained
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
salt and pepper to taste
4 cans white beans, drained and rinsed
3 cups fresh baby spinach

Topping Ideas:

1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
bunch of chopped fresh parsley
red pepper flakes

Instructions

In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. When shimmering, add onion, garlic, and carrots; cook until the onion is softened, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the broth, fresh or frozen green beans, tomatoes, sugar, Parmesan cheese, oregano, basil, salt and pepper.

Bring the soup to a boil, reduce and simmer 5 to 7 minutes or until the vegetables are softened. Stir in the beans and spinach and continue to simmer until the spinach has wilted; 1 to 2 minutes more. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Ladle into bowls; top with freshly grated parmesan cheese, chopped fresh parsley, and red pepper flakes if desired. Serve warm and yummy!
