Bean Soup {Tuscan Style}

Easiest Bean Soup – a healthy soup made with creamy beans and a handful of basic ingredients. It’s flavorful and filling and perfect for a quick lunch or dinner!

Wondering what to serve with it? You can’t go wrong with homemade breadsticks, crusty no knead bread, or a side salad.

Bean Soup Recipes

Simple as they are I actually love a good bean soup. I already have so many I’ve shared in my recipe collection:

  • Bean and Bacon Soup
  • Black Bean Tortilla Soup
  • Black Bean Soup
  • Ham and Bean Soup (Slow Cooker or Stovetop)
  • Kale White Bean and Sausage Soup
  • Pasta Fagioli Soup (Pasta and Bean Soup)

And now we’ve got this delicious yet unbelievably easy Tuscan style soup to add to the rotation! Once you try it and see what breeze it is you’ll be wondering where this recipe has been your whole life!

The Flavor Secret to This Soup

So you’ll notice there aren’t many ingredients here. To build up flavor we use boldly flavor ingredients – lots of garlic and a parmesan rind (the dry and waxy exterior from a parmesan wedge).

I never throw away a parmesan rind. I save them for all sorts of soups and sauces (they make a delicious marinara). And here they add a delicious cheesy flavor to this soup.

If you don’t have a parmesan rind (if it’s not imported cheese found in the specialty cheeses it likely won’t have one) you can just stir some parmesan into the soup at the end but I don’t recommend skipping out on the parmesan.
