If you’re looking for a QUICK delicious, nutritious soup this winter, say no more, you will love this Greek white bean soup. Traditionally, the soup does not have spicy heat, garlic or wine. We also don’t puree a portion of it – and instead leave it to have more of a soup consistency. But what a game changer that is. If you’re a fan of chili, this will certainly satiate you.

Creamy + Spicy Fasolada (White Bean Soup)
- 3 tbs olive oil
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 2 large carrots, diced
- 2 large celery stalks, diced
- 4 cloves garlilc, minced
- 1 heaping tbs tomato paste
- 3/4 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp Italian Herb Seasoning
- 1/4 tsp chili flakes
- black pepper to taste
- 1/3 cup dry white wine
- 45 oz cannellini beans (3 cans drained + rinsed)
- 3 cups low sodium vegetable broth (or chicken)
- 1 large handful baby spinach
- In a medium pot, heat your olive oil on medium. Add in the onions, celery and carrots and saute until they soften – about 7 minutes. Stir in the garlic for 30 seconds. Pop in the tomato paste and seasonings and give it a stir to coat everything. Add in the wine and cook for 1 minutes. Next add in the beans and the broth. Bring it to boil and then lower the heat to simmer, cover and cook 15 minutes.
- Transfer about 1½ cups of the soup to a small blender and puree until smooth. Pour that back into your soup along with the baby spinach and stir to combine and wilt.
- Serve with fresh lemon wedges.
