Tuscan White Bean Soup
We have been hit hard with this year’s cold and flu season. It’s been a rough few weeks for my family. It’s no fun when your kids are not feeling well, but it’s especially no fun when moms get sick. Nobody has time for that, right?!
Other than wanting to stay in my sweats all day with a warm blanket binging my favorite show, there is only one other thing I want and need. Soup!
There is something so comforting about a warm bowl of soup to help you feel better. And that’s where this Crock-Pot Tuscan White Bean Soup comes in.
When I’m sick I crave something hearty, healthy, and flavorful and this Tuscan White Bean Soup ticks all of the boxes. It may seem like ordinary ingredients, but when they cook in the Crock-Pot all day, something amazing happens.
My Secret Ingredient
The ingredients cook together beautifully and the soup packs a lot of flavors! This is a result of so many delicious ingredients coming together in one soup — chicken stock, bay leaf, rosemary, Holland House White Cooking Wine, and a ton of veggies!
My secret ingredient is Holland House Cooking Wines. I find Holland House Cooking Wines elevate each recipe and complement any cuisine. In this recipe, the white cooking wine offers a crisp white-wine aroma perfect for this light but filling soup.
I know you will love this Crock-Pot Tuscan White Bean Soup when you’re under the weather, on a chilly night, or even when having family over for dinner. It’s like the perfect cozy sweater, it fits all occasions. The best part is there are only 15 minutes of prep for this soup. Thirty minutes before serving you add in kale and then dinner is served!
The soup is made even easier because you put it in Crock-Pot and go about your TV binging. It may surprise you to learn that the Crock-Pot® slow cooker, used in so many kitchens around the world, debuted over four decades ago as a simple bean cooker, which makes it perfect for this Tuscan White Bean Soup.
