20-Minute Creamy Tuscan White Bean Soup Recipe Is Fantastic

Want to be out of the kitchen and at the dinner or lunch table in about 20 minutes? This healthy white bean soup recipe has just a few simple ingredients, is packed with flavor and requires minimal prep.

Don't have kale? Don't add it. Serve with toasted baguette slices or croutons. To fancy it up, drizzle with a little olive oil before serving.

Cuisine: Italian
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Servings: 3 to 4


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cans (15 ounces each) cannellini beans
  • 2 cups vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary or 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme or 1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 - 3 large kale leaves, chopped (optional)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Puree one can of the cannellini beans (undrained) in a blender until smooth. Drain and rinse the other two cans.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a soup pot. Add the garlic and cook about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the pureed cannellini beans, rinsed and drained beans, broth, rosemary, thyme and red pepper flakes, to taste.
  4. If using, add the chopped kale to the pot.
  5. Simmer, stirring often, about 15 minutes. Season with black pepper and salt, to taste. If you want the soup creamier, mash up some of the beans to help thicken it. Serve.

Elisa All Schmitz 30Seconds , thought about you while I was making this last night. So simple and healthy. And it's super fast to make. I only added the kale because I had it. Next time I may add some Italian sausage, too. (More for Martin than me!) :-)

I made this basic recipe, but added a roasted chicken breast, some diced potatoes, and a can of stewed tomatoes. Yummy!
