Cannellini & Potato Vegetable Soup
January is National Soup Month! You might be accustomed to picking up canned soup at the supermarket, but doesn’t the smell of homemade soup in your kitchen sound so much better? Our new recipe for Cannellini & Potato Vegetable Soup takes just 5 minutes to prep and 25 minutes to cook, so you’ll have a nourishing meal on your table in just a half hour, and you’ll be in control of the quality of your ingredients! We’ve relied on the Italian cooking method of using beans to create broth, so you won’t have to worry about making or buying broth, and that’s what makes this soup so delicious and so fast!
We’ve fallen in love with our new cannellini beans, rich in protein and fiber and traditionally soaked for 24 hours before cooking. You can eat these beans right out of the jar, they taste so good! They are also certified gluten free and completely allergen free. Just like our jarred tomatoes, our new beans are an alternative to canned products because they are packed in glass jar without harmful chemicals or off-flavors.
