After a bit of a long day and the kids going to bed later than normal, quite frankly dinner needed to be quick tonight!
I found this really easy recipe for a White Bean soup that is ready in under 30 minutes. Sold! Whilst I didn’t have all of the elements to hand, I was able to produce a similar version, with great results!
I finely chopped up 1 large Desiree potato (with skin still on) and chucked them into a Saucepan. Next, I added 4 chopped up Cauliflower florets, 2 chopped up carrots, a diced celery stick and 2 finely diced cloves of garlic. I added enough water to cover the ingredients.
I then threw in a chicken stock cube, some frozen parsley and a good handful of thyme!
Next, I added a good smattering of Paprika (going off Piste here, I’m a bit of a rebel like that..!) and half of a hot red chilli. I also added a dollop of Tomato purée. Oops!
After the soup had been cooking away for 20 minutes, I then added the Butter Beans (shop bought, tinned). At 30 minutes I turned off the hob.
What a lovely, easy, fragrant and fresh dish. This really fulfilled the tummy and was ever so simple & healthy.
Loads left for tomorrow’s lunch as well. Bonus! Give it a try and let me know your thoughts 😋
