It is cold out there. Time for a hearty soup to warm up soul and body!
Very simple and delicious. Enjoy!
Ingredients (serve 4 large bowls):
1 brown onion, diced
1 carrot, grated
1 celery stick, diced
3 bay leaves
2 garlic cloves, crushed
400 g chestnut mushroom, chopped
1/2L chicken (or veg) stock
4 sage leaves
400g tinned butter beans, drained and rinsed
1 tbsp parsley, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
In a heavy-based large pan, over medium heat, sizzle gently the onion, carrot and celery with the olive oil. When the onion turns translucent, stir in the garlic, bay leaves and mushroom and cook for 5 mins, stirring regularly.
Add chicken stock, sage and butter beans, bring to the boil and cook for 15 mins.
Remove the sage and bay leaves before serving, sprinkle the parsley and serve with a ciabatta or sourdough.
