Cannellini beans, chicken stock and fresh spinach are used in this flavourful Italian soup. Serve garnished with grated Parmesan cheese.
Something else. Wonderful with the following additions: double garlic, l/4 more beans, use chicken stock in place of water, add 1T fresh Rosemary,double the lemon juice. - 24 Jul 2008
Something else. I love Tuscan Bean soup. This recipe is a good base, however many of the suggested modifications should be considered. Chicken or vegetable stock, extra garlic, and extra thyme & rosemary. I prefer using broccoli over spinach for much more taste. As a final touch, three necessities: 1. Fresh Parsley! About a handful chopped. Really adds a fresh taste. 2. Good Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Stir in about 4 TBS at the very end. Can't make a decent italian soup without using a decent olive oil. 3. And finally, some freshly grated quality parmesan cheese on top. Good cheese goes a long, long way. - 24 Jul 2008
Easy to make, tasty and very filling! A healthy lunch that prevents the afternoon munches! Will be making this again and will try to remember to add the lemon juice next time!! - 25 Jan 2013
