Hearty White Bean Soup
This hearty white bean soup will warm you up on the coldest of days and leave you wanting more.
- 4 cups veggie stock
- 4 cups white beans (We use about 1 1/2 cups dried beans that expands to 4 cups after soaking.)
- 3 cloves garlic
- 6 organic carrots
- 6 celery stalks
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 medium yellow onion
- 1 T olive oil
- 1 T parsley
- 1/2 tsp sage
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- salt to taste
- In a food processor , finely chop the onion, celery, carrots, and garlic.
- Put everything in a crock pot , turn on low, and let the contents slowly get warm.
- After they are warm (about an hour), you can turn on high and let slow cook for some time.
The longer you can let it cook, the better. I would suggest waiting to salt the soup after everything has had a chance to cook. If you salt a soup too early, you run the risk of it being too salty as some of the liquid inevitably boils off. Enjoy!
