White Bean Soup

White Bean Soup

During the cold months, I love to make a variety of bean soups, like my Jamaican Gungo Peas Soup and my Split Peas Soup. They each give their unique flavor using basic ingredients such as onions, garlic, carrots, and potatoes. I added coconut milk for extra creaminess and a combination of herbs for a unique taste. This soup has gusto and body, which is perfect for cold wintry days.

Beans are highly nutritious, very economical, and high in antioxidants. They come in over a thousand varieties with so many different flavors, shapes, and sizes. They are so versatile, they make a great alternative to meat protein in the diet.

  1. Made this tonight. It was very good and hearty. My husband really enjoyed it too. I followed the recipe with the exception that I cheated and used canned white beans. I would say I had to use about 1.5 cups of water more than called for, but that was probably because the beans were already cooked and more porous. I think I used a little more potato too. Will make this again. It was quick and easy! thank you!

    This sounds absolutely delicious! My husband and sons don’t care much for soup, but my daughter and I will love this. Now I’m looking forward to a chilly spring day so I can try this!

  6. I used to hate beans when I was younger, when I was about twenty something, that’s the time I learned to appreciate them. I try all the dishes that have beans in them now, instead of avoiding them like the plague. Thanks for this recipe! It’s perfect for cold nights!

    This looks delish!! It’s too hot here to think about soup, but I’m going to save this for next winter!

  7. While I am not a huge fan of bean soups, this is something that I will want to try because of the coconut milk. It’s an interesting additional ingredient if you ask me.
