Warm or Cold Tomato and White Bean Soup

Photo by: Joey DeLeo

Fresh herbal overtones lift the flavor of this instant soup. White beans make a creamy base for soups, dips, and sauces.

Yield: 6 servings

INGREDIENTS
  • Two 16-ounce cans cannellini (large white beans), drained and rinsed
  • One 28-ounce can stewed low-sodium tomatoes
  • 2 scallions, green parts only, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro, parsley, or dill, or to taste
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons salt-free herb-and-spice seasoning mix, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions

1. Reserve half of the beans and place the rest in a food processor along with the remaining ingredients.

2. Puree until smooth. Transfer to a serving container if serving cold or to a large saucepan if serving hot. Stir in the reserved beans.

3. Serve at once if you’d like this at room temperature, or cover and refrigerate until chilled if desired. If you’d like to serve this warm, heat slowly in a large saucepan, and serve.
