Easy Tuscan Bean Soup Recipe

A warm bowl of hearty Tuscan Bean soup warms your belly and your soul!  A perfect budget-friendly meal that you can make ahead and eat for dinner and lunch all week long.

Use a combination of pantry staples like beans, garlic and onions and simple fresh veggies like carrots, celery, and kale and fresh herbs like rosemary to make this hearty bean soup.  This soup was on a weekly rotation at my house during Lent as it’s the perfect Meatless meal that you can prepare quickly and everyone loves it!

The rosemary is a must in this recipe.  It gives an intense depth of flavor that is unmistakable.  If you do not have fresh rosemary, you can substitute dry rosemary, oregano or thyme.

Serve with freshly grated parmesan cheese and crusty artisan bread, or toasted pita bread for sopping up all the delicious broth!

Ingredients in Tuscan Bean Soup

How to Make Tuscan Bean Soup
