I threw together this soup the other night and it was so quick and easy that I wanted to share it with you. Perfect to warm you on a cold evening, and full of healthy ingredients!
Italian Bean Soup
1 can diced tomatoes with juice
1 can drained kidney beans
1 can drained cannelini beans
1/2 cup fresh mushrooms
2 cups water
2 chicken (or vegetarian) boullion cubes
1/2 cup orzo
1 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 finely chopped garlic clove
Place all ingredients in a large pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Serve topped with freshly grated parmesan.
Yield: around 6 1/2 cups, so if you have a large family or want leftovers, you'll need to double the recipe.
We served our with hunks of garlic Artisan bread, and a side of roasted broccoli.
