If you are looking for a new way to incorporate beans to your diet, soup is a perfect option for you. You have two options whether to use dried beans for the soup or canned beans. Recipes with both options will be almost identical. You make the broth and add sautéed veggies for color and flavor. The only distinctive thing between the two will be cooking time. As dried beans should be presoaked before cooking for at least one hour or two and then boiled for an hour and a half. You can do the math. So, I decided to use canned beans instead and to make white bean soup with canned beans.

  • 1 can white beans;
  • 2 potatoes;
  • 1 onion, chopped;
  • 1 carrot, grated;
  • ½ bell pepper, chopped;
  • 1.5 l water;
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil;
  • 1-2 tbsp. tomato paste;
  • 1 tsp. mix of oregano, thyme and basil;
  • 1 bay leaf;
  • 2-3 black peppercorns;
  • salt and pepper to your taste.

How to cook soup with canned beans and pork loin at home:

  • To cook broth for our beans soup place, cut meat into medium sized cubes and place them in the pot. Cover with cold water and let it boil. Get rid of all the foam floating on the surface of the broth. Add peppercorns with a bay leaf. Reduce heat to low and let the broth simmer for 50-60 minutes.

Step_1 How to make soup with canned beans and pork

  • While we are cooking broth on the stove, lets sauté vegetables. Chop peeled onion into small cubes. Heat oil in the skillet over medium to high heat and add onion. Sauté onion for 3 minutes until soft.

Step_2 How to make soup with canned beans and pork

  • Add chopped bell pepper to the skillet. Cook vegetables for additional 3-5 minutes.

Step_3 How to make soup with canned beans and pork

  • Grate carrot and add it to the mix. Sauté for about 5 minutes more and take it from the stove.

Step_4 How to make soup with canned beans and pork

  • When you see that the meat in the pot is cooked through, take it out of the broth together with a bay leaf and peppercorns (as they gave all the flavor to the broth). Shred it into small pieces.
  • Add cubed potatoes to the simmering broth. Get it to a boil again and let potatoes cook for 10 minutes.

Step_5 How to make soup with canned beans and pork

  • In 10 minutes, add sautéed vegetables.

Step_6 How to make soup with canned beans and pork

  • Check the doneness of potatoes. If they are cooked through, now is the time to add drained beans from the can (I usually rinse them slightly in the colander, too).

Step_7 How to make soup with canned beans and pork

  • Add tomato paste and thoroughly mix it in the pot to get it evenly dissolved in the broth. You can also use canned beans in tomato sauce, then you reduce the amount of tomato paste or do not use it all. Or you can skip this step entirely (I just love the sourness that tomato paste adds to the mix).

Step_8 How to make soup with canned beans and pork

  • In the end, you add shredded meat, chopped fresh parsley and other seasoning you have (herbs, salt and pepper). Let the soup reboil, cover the pot with a lid and take it off the stove. Let it sit for 10 minutes or so before serving.
