I love soup, I may have mentioned this a time or two. It doesn't matter to me if it is cold outside or not, soup is always good.
2 large cloves of garlic, pressed or minced
2 -15oz. cans Great Northern beans or Cannellini beans
2 tablespoons olive oil plus a couple more for the broth
1 quart vegetable broth or chicken broth
1 teaspoon each of parsley, marjoram, oregano
salt and pepper to taste
freshly grated parmesan cheese, optional
Saute the onion in the olive oil
Into the pot put all the ingredients except the cheese. I added a couple tablespoons of the olive oil to the broth to increase flavor and make the texture smoother, it made a big difference.
