5-Ingredient Tuscan Bean Soup

This 5-Ingredient Tuscan Bean Soup is warming, comforting and so incredibly simple to make. It’s like a much needed hug for your taste buds on a chilly evening. While the beans make this soup substantial enough to be eaten on its own, the kale and parsley give it some freshness.

I happily eat this soup all year round. Whether I have it for dinner or make it ahead of time for weekday lunches, this soup never disappoints.

As the title already says, this Tuscan bean soup calls for only 5 ingredients. While you need to soak the beans ahead of time, there is not a lot of hands-on time required. I highly recommend giving the beans time to cook until they’re soft and practically melt in your mouth. That’s when they are the tastiest.

Because this soup uses only a handful of ingredients, the ingredients and their quality will significantly impact the quality and taste of your soup. I highly recommend investing in a good quality stock as the beans will soak up the flavours from the stock during the cooking process.

You can eat this soup by itself or serve it with bread or these simple flatbreads.
