1. Wash, sort and soak the beans overnight*.

2. Put beans and broth** in a large pot (broth should cover the beans – add a bit more if necessary). Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until beans are soft (depending on your beans, about one hour). Check and stir occasionally, add more broth if necessary.

3. When beans are quite soft, pour off the stock and set aside.

4. Remove half the beans, mash them in a separate bowl and set aside.

5. Mince garlic. Heat olive oil in a skillet and gently sauté the garlic over a low flame, until it begins to soften.

6. Add the whole beans to the skillet and gently sauté for another 3-5 minutes – stop before they begin to stick. Set aside.

7. Scoop the mashed beans back into the empty soup pot. Add broth a bit at a time and blend well (use a whisk if you have one) until it reaches the desired consistency – this soup should be thick (use water if you run out of broth).

8. Add the whole beans and garlic to the soup pot and bring to a boil. Add parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.

9. Add dry wine if using. Adjust seasoning and consistency. Serve hot.


Notes: This is a simple tasty soup that’s perfect for winter (because it doesn’t require any fresh veggies). You can use any type of broth** you’d like vegetable, chicken, etc.
