This is a super-delicious soup packed full of protein. Cannellini beans are simmered with chicory, tomatoes, chicken stock and garlic. It can be made into a vegan soup by using vegetable stock. Enjoy with fresh crusty bread.
I really enjoyed this! Only a few modifications...sauteed the garlic with the onion in olive oil, added some crushed red chilies and diced celery with leaves. Recipe doesn't specify, but it is very important (in my opinion anyway) to use product of Spain or Italy tomatoes for the best flavor. I served topped with freshly grated parm cheese and crusty bread. So simple and delicious! Thanks - 23 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I enjoyed this soup however I used veggie broth instead of chicken broth. It's good with or without the garlic as I have tried it both ways. - 07 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This soup was so good. The only thing I did differently was to use a 48 oz can of chicken broth instead of using the bouillon. I also followed the other suggestion of adding in celery (two ribs) and red pepper flakes. My husband definitely said this was a keeper. - 26 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
