I love a good soup and this one has been on repeat in our kitchen for the last six months or so. We even ate it all summer long. It does however lend itself perfectly well to autumn with celery, carrot and onion as the base. I think maybe we could call this the holy trinity of soups because they make every soup broth taste good. In this soup we enjoy eating them as well though of course along with kale or cavolo nero and white beans. So yummy!

It’s a rustic and hearty soup that is inspired by a Tuscan bean soup. The main difference being that this version is meat-free and uses vegetable stock. The soup is coloured red by a tin of chopped tomatoes which I think is prefect in there to give it a bit of the umami we lose when removing animal products from the dish.

I hope you will all enjoy this soup as much as we do!
