Ashley's bean soup Notes

This recipe came from Ashley, my daughter's childhood friend. My daughter, who is all of 21, can even make this to perfection.

  • 4 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons dried basil
  • 49 ounces chicken broth (6-7 teaspoon soup base to 6 cups water, will make about 49 oz)
  • 48 ounce can white northern beans
  • 28 ounces diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 head chicory (endive)
Serves / Yields

aprox. 12 cups

Preparation Instructions

Saute garlic and onion in oil. Put in a large pot and add herbs, chicken broth, beans and tomatoes. Simmer for at least 1/2 hour. Add cleaned chicory. Cook until wilted. Serve immediately.

Helpful Hints

I use the chicken soup base from the Spice House. A good crusty bread or garlic bread goes well as a meal. I have sprinkled fresh grated parmesan cheese on top before serving also.
