A HEARTY AND BRIGHT SLOW COOKER SOUP RECIPE
And we love using slow cookers when making soup. There’s a certain set-it-and-forget-it aspect to using a slow cooker that minimizes tasks in the kitchen, while still delivering maximized flavor.
This bright and savory Tuscan white bean soup won’t require you to reinvent the wheel in your home kitchen – and is loaded with Mediterranean flavors.
Onions, carrots and kale impart tons of veggie freshness – and we’re using quinoa for a light yet hearty boost.
Now, as far as the beans are concerned, you can use chickpeas or cannellini beans. Your choice. They both work well in this white bean soup recipe.
The secret weapon in this recipe is lemon juice. It delivers a light, breezy tartness in contrast to the savory chicken broth. Btw… if you want to make this a vegan soup recipe, simply swap the chicken broth with vegetable broth – and omit the Parmesan cheese. Easy!
