White Bean Sage Soup
Low Fat Recipe
Here's a wonderful, thick and Hearty White Bean and Sage Soup that tastes great with crusty French bread. Olive oil is the "good" kind of fat, so no worries about the minimal amount in this recipe. If you can, do use the short tube pasta - it works great in this soup.
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans (15 ounces) navy beans, drained, divided
2 cans (13 1/2 ounces) lower salt chicken broth
1/2 cup short tube pasta
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Handful of bacon bits, if desired
Recipe DirectionsSaute onion and garlic until soft. Add 1 can beans. Press beans into a paste.
Add broth and, if using, bacon bits. Heat to boil.
Add pasta, sage and pepper. Boil until pasta is just tender.
Add remaining can of beans. Simmer 2 minutes.
Recipe makes 5 servings, 1-cup each.
